Strawberry Ginger Jam

Mermelada de frutillas

I love homemade jams. In my family my mother, grandmother and aunts made jams every summer, enough for the whole year.

I recommend using cold glasses. A few […]

Popsicles always brought many memories of summer holidays in Chile and my favorite flavors. For a long time my favorite popsicle ice […]
