How to make Strawberry Jam - with no pectin

So i got this pack of strawberries and i couldn't think of a better thing to do with it other than making a fruity spread so it wouldn't go to waste due to the fact that the shelf life of the fruit is really nothing to write home about except when frozen.

Fish Roll Recipe - Nigerian deep fried fish snack

If you haven't tried "homemade" fish roll before, let me tell you right now, it is absolutely delicious! If you noticed, the emphasis was on the "homemade" meaning nothing beats the homemade version. The amount of fish, more like a spec they put in the store bought version could make even a grown adult cry. I wish they could rename those to "fish flavored rolls" instead of fish rolls...lol! As with most snacks, it's more about the seasoning and flavors and best of all the amount of fish within.
