Homemade Jam Season

I got a wild hair this weekend to make some homemade jam. I had 8 cups of cherries in the freezer from my family tree and some frozen ripe strawberries from the local U-Pick farm outside of town.

The kids and I worked for an entire morning to make three batches of jam, two cherry and one strawberry. The strawberry just came out so vibrant and well incorporated throughout. I find it mesmerizing! And they both taste really wonderful too!

I did use my food processor to breakup and crush the fruit fairly finely. I like jam with the whole fruit in it but I don’t like huge chunks as I spread on my carbohydrate platform. The kiddos have already consumed an ENTIRE jar of strawberry and can’t wait to pick more strawberries next year!

Happy Canning!!
