In case I've totally confused you...I made my strawberry jam! Woo hoo!
First local grown strawberries fresh picked:
Then give them a little bath:
Next, pulverize them:
Add just a dash of sugar:
Here's a view of the operations:
Now boil those jars:
Ah, ain't they beautiful?!
And now for my taste:
Voila! Strawberry jam!
Now for anyone that has ever wanted to try canning, I say go for it! It's not hard, there are just quite a few steps in terms of boiling canning. But there's also freezer canning and this recipe could not be easier! A few years ago I started with salsa which turned out pretty good. Jellies and Jams are pretty easy to start with too and trust me, there is NOTHING like jelly/jam made with fresh strawberries and a crap load of sugar!
I will be bouncing off the walls this fine Sunday...
EDIT: I was just thinking...I shouldn't keep this goodness all to myself...
How about a giveaway? Anyone want their very own jar of my strawberry jam??? Just leave a comment here and I will draw a name sometime this week! Happy Sunday everyone!
