Strawberry Jam

 Today I'm sharing my favorite strawberry jam. 

As a little girl my grandma would pick me up bright and early to head to the berry patch. 
We'd pick quarts and quarts of berries, and then sometimes my brother and I would sell them to make a little money or we'd make jam or pie. 

I don't ever eat jam unless it's homemade freezer jam. 
My grandma's have definitely spoiled me because I really don't like jams, soups or pies that aren't homemade. 

This is a super simple recipe that anyone can make,
I simply follow the recipe on the Sure Jell box. 
I use the Quick and Easy Freezer Jam recipe. 
It doesn't take more than 30 minutes including cutting the berries.

Strawberry Jam

Items Needed:
1 Quart Strawberries
4 Cups Sugar
3/4 C. Water
1 Package Sure Jell
Jars for storage

1. Measure out one quart of berries.

2. Prepare-wash and dry your jars and lids.

3. Wash and dry your berries. 
De-stem and cut the berries in half.
Place in a blender.

4. Blend the berries until you have just little pieces remaining. 
I love love love our Ninja blender
If you don't have one, you need one. 
It's so easy to use!
You should have 2 cups of blended berries.
 Pour the berries into a larger bowl.

5. Add in 4 cups of sugar.
