Strawberry Jam!

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! :)


  1. MMMM... looks delicious. I happened on your blog and I hope you don't mind me following.

  2. I just found a neat resource two days ago. They have a publication somewhere on this website called "Principles of Home Canning," as well. I thought you would enjoy this!
