Strawberry Jam & A Recipe!

June 27, 2017

Lovely salads with our strawberries, lettuces, radishes, cherry tomatoes…

I have frozen so many bags of strawberries this season. Problem: There are so very many bags of strawberries in the freezer from last year!

Last year’s strawberries from the deep freeze.

Today I will remedy the problem: Strawberry Jam! I will make jam until all last year’s berries are out of the freezer.

Not sure how many jars I will have. The recipe says one batch is 8 cups. That requires 12 cups of berries. I have 17 quart bags of frozen strawberries, though some are over-filled, some under-filled. When they are all thawed I will pour them into an over-sized stainless steel bowl & get started. If there are strawberries left over but not enough for a full recipe, I will add raspberries & blackberries: Mixed Berry Jam!

Have a good day!
