      Ritual recipe

      Passing down family recipes and cooking skills to younger generations creates strong bonds and lasting memories. When you make food together as a family, it helps everyone live in the moment – and preserving fruits is also a great way to avoid food waste! Turning the season’s excess into something you can enjoy for months to come. 


      • Get all the kids an MARIATHERES children’s apron. Put all the necessary tools on the kitchen counter.
      • Fill bowls with fruits that are in season – think apricots, plums and strawberries.
      • Use a wide pot like IKEA 365+ to cook the recipe. Put the children on stirring duty with KONCIS balloon whisks – and adult supervision.
      • Once it’s done, separate the preserves into small KORKEN jars. Share the love, save a lot and gift a few decorated jars.

      Just add water, sugar, and a lot of love

      Put the fruit in an IKEA 365+ pot and stir it with a KONCIS balloon whisk until the preserve is ready to be poured into KORKEN jars – where it (and the memories) will last for a long time.
