Strawberries are only 99 cents a pound at the Ranch Market by me, and they are good ones. Here is the recipe we followed: (from Chef Tess)
4 cups crushed berries (used food processor)
1 1/2 cups honey
1 pkg freezer pectin
We used a gel kind of pectin and the powder kind. The powder kind set up better. I was going to add some Clear Jel to the runnier jam, but we are just using it on pancakes instead.
How do we like our jam? Well, if it were proper I would eat it with a spoon out of the jar. But, to be a good example to the children I try to use it on other foods such as toast, biscuits, pancakes, in yogurt (makes beautiful parfaits-just layer plain yogurt and strawberry jam), on ice cream, you name it! I think I will have some for lunch on this lovely bread~
(see how pretty it comes out with good wheat? yay!)
