    1. It is very interesting to learn the recipe of cooking strawberry jam. But I do not like the full English breakfast, because it is fatty food for me.

      1. Very true Kulanova. It's not a good idea to eat it too often :)

    2. I like cherry jam more than strawberry.
      British breakfast is nice, but I prefer American traditional dishes, such as chili con carne or clam chowder.
