If You Want The Best Jam, You've Got To Make Your Own...

I'm home with my hurt little one again today.  He had a good afternoon yesterday and helped me put the strawberries I picked in the bag.  Our first real harvest of the year yielded us 7 pints of berries!   

Then, last night he had a really tough time.  So today we're having a quiet day.  He did help me with some prep work,  pouring the sugar and lemon juice into the pot.  What are we doing?  We're listening to Michelle Shocked instruct us on jam making (you can listen too by clicking on the link).

Strawberry Jam:
3 lbs. Strawberries
1 Cup Sugar (I use super fine bakers sugar)
1 Tbs. Lemon Juice

Quarter Strawberries, bring to boil and then reduce to a medium heat and gently boil for 45 minutes.  Jar and enjoy!
