We Jammin'

This post title just puts a smile on my face. Who doesn't love a little Bob in their day?? I'll be humming that one all night. 

Last week I shared some pictures from strawberry picking. We seriously have soooo many strawberries. After freezing many bags, my mom and I used the rest for some home-made jam. Yummy! It's not as hard as I thought it would be. It's actually kind of easy. We used the canning directions on Pioneer Woman's site.
Start by washing and hulling the strawberries.
Next place them on a rimmed baking sheet and mash them up. This was my favorite part.
Boil the strawberry mush. Then add pectin (it makes it thick) and a TON of sugar.
Finally add the jam to heated jars. Boil and then attach the lids. Let them cool overnight, and wait to hear the 'POP' of air tight freshness. Our jam turned out great! I see a lot of PB&J in my future.

Have you made jam before? What do you like to use your strawberries for?

  1. Homemade jam is SO GOOD! We've been eating ours on everything! Pancakes, english muffins, in yogurt, on ice cream, off the spoon ;) and of course PB&J's! Glad you found a good recipe. Pioneer Woman's recipe's are where it's at!

  2. That looks so delicious! I'm not a huge Jam person but I probably would be if I made it myself haha.

  3. Yum! That looks so good!! You also make it seem pretty easy!

  4. I've made grape jelly. You have made the strawberries look scrumptious in your photos. :) Lovely Work!

  5. Oh My Goodness these look absolutely relish! I can't wait tip picking season is here so we can get some...thanks for sharing this with the #ClickChicks Photo Challenge...awesome photos :D
