I know I am so talkative today - sorry!
My cousin Nicole asked me for my strawberry jam recipe so I thought I would post it here.
Quick Strawberry Jam
2 cups of crushed strawberries
2 cups sugar ( I use less, more like 1 cup - 1 1/2 cups)
Cook until consistency of jam.
That's the recipe in its entirety.
Now I will tell you that I like to add Sure-Jell to mine for thickening, but you don't have to. It is quite delicious either way.
I boil my jars and lids, and then when the jam is done, I fill the hot, dry jars with jam, put a lid on and turn the ring until it is tight. It will vacuum seal itself.
