Strawberry Jam


One of my favorite spring-time activities is strawberry picking and this year, my daughter was just as excited as me. Two trips and over 12 lbs. of strawberries later, we realized that we should do something creative with them...after delivering bunches to friends and neighbors, eating hundreds and having strawberry shortcake on several occasions! So, I found the most comprehensive recipe/formula/instructions from The Pioneer Woman. Oh, how I wish she was my neighbor! It was so much fun to make strawberry jam. My sweet mother-in-law had all of the canning utensils we needed (and a lot are needed) and my husband was in charge of the whole canning process while Janie and I cooked. We worked together and I have to say, it is really yummy jam!
