Strawberry Jam YUMMY!

Im sure I have said this before but I LOVE LOVE LOVE summer specifically because of all the yummy fresh fruits and veggies. Hubby went strawberry picking 2 weeks ago and we froze a ton of strawberries . One thing that is a huge hit in our house is Grandmas strawberry jam, the kids love it , I love it and its super easy. So I made a double batch last week because we ran out of the store bought stuff. The one thing I like about homemade jam is I make it beetle free. About 6 years ago i spread a beetle on my toast and said I would never eat store bought again. EWWWWW! So Im glad to find out how easy it is to make.

2 cups of mashed Starberries
4 cups of sugar ( crazy I know)
1 box of pectin

add the sugar and strawberries , set aside. Boil a 1/4 cup of water with package of pectin let it boil for a couple minutes , then add to strawberry mixture. Pour into tupperware containers and let sit for 24 hrs at room temp. Then throw them in your freezer.

I also did a few smaller containers for our camping trips.


  1. Tania, so far about 5 people have e-mailed me about the fabric, so I'll definitely put your name in the drawing! But I'll need your e-mail address in case I draw your name!

    And that jam looks so good!!!!



  2. Is that the same recipe your mom uses? I LOVE her jam!!!!
