It is SO insanely yummy...and SO much easier to make than you would think.
I got to talking with a friend last week about how quickly we go through jelly, and how expensive it can be to buy the organic kind in bulk...and she said, "let's get together this week and make some!"
So 2 other mama's and I got together at our place and made some good 'ol strawberry jam...with all our kids...it was a good time :).
All you need are strawberries, pectin, and sugar...
- For 1 batch you mix 2 cups of crushed (in a blender) strawberries with 4 cups of regular sugar and let stand for 10 minutes...
- Mix 3/4 cup of water with one box of pectin and bring to a boil while stirring constantly - when it comes to a boil you stir for one minute and then remove from heat.
- Stir the pectin into the fruit and stir for 3 minutes.
- Quickly pour into jars, fill to within 1/2 inch of the top and let stand for 24 hours.
