Last week I decided to make strawberry jam. I grow a few strawberries in my yard, but not enough for jam, I planned to take the boys to pick some. Apparently there are too many pickers and not enough strawberries around here, so we just bought local strawberries at the fruit market.
I have never made jam before, but it wasn't too hard. It is so delicious--well worth the effort! After washing and hulling the strawberries, I pureed the strawberries.The next step was boiling the strawberries and pectin, then adding the sugar and boiling a bit more.
Once it was done, I canned the jam using a hot water bath method and it's all done! :)
