Strawberry jam recipe


Every summer I make this. At least one batch. I used to make several batches when the kids were still home and we lived in town. I liked to bring it our neighbors, and give it as gifts to family and friends.

This year I only made one batch as I didn't go strawberry picking like I usually do. I just bought a few  berries from the local Farmers Market.

I did package a few jars for gifts..you can check that out on my other blog, Stampin Up North.

This is the easiest jam to make..and I think the tastiest. It always tastes just like fresh picked strawberries. We have it on toast, ice cream, crackers, and of course PB&J's.

When it's snowin' and blowin' and 40 below, it's fun to pull out a jar of this from the freezer.



 It's tastes just like summer!
