Recipe for the best strawberry jam EVER!
First... pick red ripe strawberries at the nearby strawberry fields. Bring them home, remove the stems, and smoosh the fruit in my special jammin' bucket. And don't eat too many or there won't be enough for the jam.
Cook the fruit adding the right amount of sugar and some pectin to help the fruit set. Keep stirring as it cools. Meanwhile heat up the clean jars in the oven. You can't put hot jam into cold jars.... that's courting disaster!
Once the jam is in the jars and the lids are on, there's bound to be some left over, so put the coffee pot on, make some toast and spread the sunshine.
And eat! Mmmmmm yummy.
This is a scheduled post as I'm away for a week... see you when I come back.
