Not a 'season correct' preserve

Who would think of making strawberry jam in the middle of January.  The guys at Kenilworth market have been pleading with me to buy some seville oranges.  They do look great, but I have about 5 jars left in cupboard, and I would really like to be making some grapefruit and lemon soon, so I think for the first time in years, I shall pass on the Seville.

However they had some punnets of wonderful looking, no doubt hot house strawberries, and since we were out of that preserve, bought some.  I think they must have been destined for the catering market since they weighted 750g each.  Anyway the boy says it taste lovely.
