I just LOVE strawberry season!! Fresh strawberries are in abundance where I live in farm country!
So every year I make lots of strawberry jam…….unfortunately I did not have a lot of time to make my usual 12-15 pints of jam.
So I bought ONE quart of strawberries and made 4 pints of jam…….it took about 30 min. from start to finish!
Have you made freezer jam before? If not let me show you HOW simple it is!
First start with this – ONE quart of strawberries
Wash, cut off the stem and mash.
Add 4 cups of sugar (yep 4 cups!!) – Let the berries and sugar sit for 10 min.
Boil 3/4 c. of water and a packet of Sure Jell
Pour the sure jell mixture into strawberry mixture, stir well and there you have it Homemade Strawberry Jam!!
In case you are wondering why the jam upper right side container is almost empty….well what do you expect I made the jam 2 days ago!!
And it is SO delicious!! It makes great PB and J sandwiches, great on toast and biscuits in the morning……and my all time fav, it makes a wonderful topping for vanilla ice cream!
I am off to enjoy some on ice cream right now. Mmmmmmmmmmmmmmm!
