Homemade Strawberry Jam

Uncategorized | April 5, 2016 | By

Nothing beats homemade jam. You can taste the freshness of the berries and it’s not that synthetic flavor that you get from most store bought jams and jellies. I also love the chunky fruit in it when I spread it across some homemade bread or a scone.

My husband and I were heading to Atlanta over the weekend and decided to stop at a u-pick strawberry field along the way. The weather was perfect and it was a good time. It’s really nice to just take a break and enjoy life for a bit.

This recipe is so simple and only yields a quart which seems like a lot but I’ve already got plans for the jam plus maybe a slice or two of toast. Also there is no pectin in this recipe, except what exists naturally in the fruit, so it’s not as thick as a store bought jam would be but feel free to add some if you don’t like the consistency.
