|My Frozen Berries|
|Mason Jar, Ring, Lid. Guess which is which|
Strawberries. I use ones we freeze that ate locally grown. I love fresh fruit, but things like stawberries go bad so quick that freezing is the only way to go. 5 bucks for a flat of em.
Sugar. Lots and lots of sugar. I need to find a replacement that works as well and is locally produced.
Lemon Juice. I used the juice from one lemon.
Thats it folks. The cooking process is kinda work intensive, but really worth it for what you get in the end.
5 Cups of Sliced Strawberries
2.5 Tablespoons of Pectin (or one package if you bought em in pouches)
6 Cups of Sugar (I KNOW right? BUT I dropped it from 7, and I think I can go lower....)
Juice of One Lemon
Pat of Butter
|Tupperware I used and blender|
Messy Messy Messy. Thats what the title of this recipe should be. The very first thing we are going to do is get the jars and lids ready. This recipe requires a water bath, and you want your jars to be pretty warm when you pour the jam in, so fill up the huge pot your gonna use to seal the jars with water, line the bottom of the pan with small mason jar lids. Put the jars your gonna use in and bring to a simmer. Take the LIDS, not the RING of the top and simmer in a small sauce pan. This gets the sealant nice and soft. Let all this stuff simmer until you are ready to pour.
