First we started out with locally grown strawberries -
Then you smash them up -
Squeeze the lemons for the lemon juice -
Bring berries, lemon juice and pectin to a boil -
Add the sugar and boil -
Put it in the jars and in the processor & process -
Cool the jars for 24 hours -
We had so much fun making this jam. Honestly by the time you buy the berries (i don't berry pick, maybe next year), the jars and the other ingredients it probably is cheaper to just buy it....BUT....I know exactly what's in it and it will taste WAY better anyway!
