Breakfast with Kate

What's breakfast like for a petite Franco-Americaine like Kate? Simply Delicious.

For my breakfast I like to eat tartine. Tartine is a french word for toast with butter and jam. Strawberry jam is my favorite (moi aussi, Kate!)  

Here is my family recipe:

First, wash two punnets (Queen's English for basket) of strawberries,
and cut them in quarters. 

Then put the strawberries in a saucepan and add 280 grams of sugar.

Cook slowly at low heat for 45 minutes and stir often.


The jam is ready when it drips very slowly from the wooden spoon. Last, pour the jam in a glass jar, and let it cool down before refrigerating.

I enjoy my tartine in the morning before school with my lait au chocolat.

Au revoir mes amis!

 Thanks Kate!

And so apropos, we just got in a new shipment of these canning jars earlier this week -perfect for jams and jellies and all that good stuff!

Ah the good life. Bottle it while you can.
