Canning

Old fashion strawberry jam.

Scooped up four quarts of strawberries at a farmers market yesterday. To kick off canning season, I made old fashion strawberry jam, which means there’s no added pectin and lemon juice to firm up the jam.

This recipe is super simple: 8 cups of mashed up strawberries and 6 cups of sugar. Boil on medium heat for a couple of hours until your mixtures reduces and thickens. Then can!

It is pretty damn delicious! So excited to get canning again!
