There are no surprises here! My family, especially my grandchildren, love my Strawberry Jam. I’ve made jams and jellies for years. My mom taught me how to make the cooked version of strawberry and blackberry jams, but over the years I have changed over to making the freezer jam recipes. Unfortunately, we lost our strawberry patch of three years to frost and deer. We had to rely on getting our strawberries from local Amish and a berry patch down the road this year. We have replanted our berries and put a fence around it to keep the deer out. Now, we pray we don’t have a late frost ever again. Wishing that in Missouri is pretty bold!
I make my Strawberry Freezer Jam the CERTO® WAY! Get the recipe here!
Start with fresh strawberries. I can’t stress the word FRESH enough. This jam is best when you use ripe, fresh off the vine strawberries. Check your local farmer’s market, Amish, neighbors, local farms. I obtained the strawberries for this batch of jam at a local berry patch… Wilsdorf Berry Patch. You can pick your own or have the owner, Debbie pick for you. Check out their website here. I already have my order in for blackberries.
