- The next day, bring this mixture to the boil in a preserving pan, pour into the bowl, cover and leave to rest in the fridge.
- On the third day, filter the strawberries through a colander covered with a fine muslin cloth or gauze. Set aside the strawberries and bring the syrup to the boil in the preserving pan, adding the lemon pips in a fabric tea bag. Continue cooking over high heat to reach 105 °C (20 to 30 minutes), stirring regularly with a wooden spoon.
