Jam making

Every summer on the last day of school the family goes strawberry picking. In the midst of stuffing our faces full of the juicy berries, we always manage to bring a bit back to make into jam to have on a blustery winter morning to remind us of the sweetness of summer…

classic strawberry jam
Wash and hull 5 lbs of strawberries. Mix in about 3.5 lbs of sugar and the juice of one lemon. Cover and let sit for at least 3 hours until the juice starts running. Then turn on high heat and boil uncovered for about 10 minutes. Turn off heat and let sit until cooled. Repeat until desired consistency is achieved. Bottle it up in sterilized jars to avoid bacteria growth!
