SAfter going strawberry picking, I knew I had to make some homemade strawberry jam. Even my 6 year old is begging me to make more. This makes for the best peanut and jelly sandwiches ever! But you may prefer to eat this strawberry jam right off the spoon…it’s THAT good!
Strawberry Jam Recipe
1 pound strawberries, washed/hulled and crushed in a food processor
1 1/4 cups sugar
Combine sugar and berries in a deep, heavy bottomed pot and cook on low to melt the sugar. Once dissolved, raise the heat to high and bring to a full boil! Stir often until it reaches 210 degrees on a candy thermometer. If you like it extra thick, let it go an extra couple of minutes. Remove from heat and cool. Store in a glass jar in the fridge and enjoy. Feel free to double this recipe!!! Store in a mason jar.
