In these strange times to have a day we can get out of the house and do something fun, National Pick Strawberries Day could be a great family outing. Google your local strawberry fields and get outside for some fresh air. 

 

 

EASY NO-PECTIN STRAWBERRY JAM RECIPE INGREDIENTS

Here’s what you’ll need to make this strawberry jam:

–strawberries- the more ripe, the better! Ripe strawberries are the sweetest!

–sugar (about 3/4 cups of sugar for each cup of berries)

–lemon juice (2 TBSP lemon juice per cup of berries)

HOW TO MAKE STRAWBERRY JAM WITHOUT PECTIN

  1. Smash cut strawberries with a potato masher or a Chop Stir. Or use a hand blender to blend strawberries to your desired consistency.
  2. Put all ingredients into a medium saucepan and stir to combine. Place on medium-high heat until mixture comes to a boil. Reduce heat to medium low and boil about 15-20 minutes.
  3. Remove from heat and transfer to glass canning jars, leaving 1/2″ of space from the top of the jar for expansion when frozen. (You’re welcome to use any other jar or container you’d like!) Cool to set.
  4. Place one jar in the fridge to use immediately and place the other jar in the freezer. Will keep for 4-6 weeks in the fridge and 2-3 months in the freezer.

Homemade Strawberry Jam made with just 3 ingredients and NO PECTIN. Making strawberry freezer jam has never been easier or more delicious!

Sharon Kowitz ~ Sadly the fresh produce sells out quickly in our local grocery store. I would enjoy ripe strawberries and might even be tempted to make jam

Sharon,

I had no idea that this was national strawberry day!  Our area (Central Coast of California) is a huge strawberry producer.  Thanks for the info. A

There is a day for everything and picking strawberries might make a wonderful visit if allowed in your state. Not sure our strawberry fields will be ready for picking till later in the summer.
