The following method is suitable for strawberries or peaches. Prepare the fruit, and pack into sterilised jars as tightly as possible, without crushing it. When jars are about half full, fill up all the crevices with sugar, then fill the jars to the tops with fruit and add all the sugar that can be shaken into them. Put on the rubbers and screw on lids tightly, then bury the jars in the ground. The earth should be three inches above the tops of the jars. Allow to remain three months in the ground before using.
