The ingredients include only strawberries, extra light sugar, lemon juice, and no added pectin. We select strawberries which are produced at the end of the growing season. The strawberries are a little sour but have strong aroma because the weather is getting hotter which makes the number of small strawberries increase. The cultivar of Feng-Xiang Strawberries originates in Japan. The flesh is smooth and it can melt in one’s mouth and bring a little smell of milk. After making into jam, the strawberries have natural sourness which enriches the flavor. There are plenty of uses of strawberry jam. Besides being used with tea, milk, sugar-free yogurt, etc., it can be used as an ingredient of desserts.
The strawberries are growing in Gongguan Township, Miaoli County. The planter Mr. Fu-Yu Xie is one of the Top 100 Young Farmers. Born in the 1980s, he started to study the cultivation of strawberries when he was in college. In the beginning, he applied the traditional method of soil cultivation, and then, he gradually turned to use elevated cultivation to enhance the drain ability, and he also adjusted the way of farm management. Besides, he also set up screened growth rooms to prevent pest, so a 4 Fen (approx. 0.387 hectare) strawberry farm can produce the quantity from an 8 Fen (approx. 0.775 hectare) strawberry farm; that is why he is called “Tech Farmer.” The strawberries of Mr. Fu-Yu Xie earned the certification of TAP (Traceability Agricultural Product), and he regularly sends his strawberries to be tested to ensure that the pesticide residues meet the standard. Good-quality strawberries are not only the safe choice for consumers but the ingredient used by many famous food processing plants.
