Strawberry jam

Category: Daily Happenings | Posted: Wed Jul 19, 2006 6:40 pm

Last evening when I went to work, we went a little early because I wanted to stop at WalMart. After, we had a sandwich and it was a little early so we stopped at the grocery store. We found some strawberries on sale so bought a few. This morning I was going to get up early and make strawberry jam. It thunderstormed during the night so I woke up for awhile. So, I didn't get up quite as early as I wanted. DR cut the strawberries while I got the jars and lids ready. I bought some No Sugar Pectin. You can use Splenda or just make it Low Sugar. I just used low sugar. We made 11 six ounce jars of it. DR already gave one to the neighbor. That's okay. We have grape jelly left from last year so we have more than enough. Whenever we give jelly or jam to neighbors, friends, relatives or whoever I always ask them to return the jars. Most do, but some don't. The ones that don't return the jars don't get any the next time. Jars are expensive to buy so I like using them again. The grapes will be ready soon so I can start making grape jelly again. I guess I should start watching yard sales and the flea market for jars. People give me big jars but I don't like putting jam in big jars. It gets sticky or hard before it gets used. No kids to help out. Dooley

I always make jam especially with the grapes in the yard, but I thought the strawberries were a bargain and DR likes strawberry jam and with the low sugar, I can use it too if I don't get carried away with it. Dooley
