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
- Smash cut strawberries with a potato masher or a Chop Stir. Or use a hand blender to blend strawberries to your desired consistency.
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
