It's Jam Time!

The girls & I spent our morning making homemade strawberry jam with my mother in law.
We make it every June & make a year supply of jam for ourselves & to give as gifts!
We made over 30 jars this morning.
Tip: Use a few recycled baby food jars to give a small jar of jam (along with homemade scones, etc)
There is nothing better than homemade strawberry jam.
I haven't bought store bought jam in over 5 years. Homemade jam is so fresh & sweet.
It's perfect on a PB&J, Toast, English Muffin or homemade scones or biscuits!

  9. I can't WAIT to make your jam again this year. Everyone I gave a jar to last year RAVED about it. Our neighbor said he poured it over ice cream. :)

  17. Okay, we're trying your jam recipe today! Alexia and I already tackled washing and de-stemming the strawberries. We'll hopefully finish our first stab at jam once Naiya goes down for her morning nap. Wish us luck!
