Jam day

I was late on the jam this year. I never found strawberries that were a good price. My parents found strawberries for 99 cents a lb at the store. I had them buy me 20 lbs! They are normally close to $4 per lb.

This week we are eating strawberries like crazy. I still have 5 pounds after making 18 jars of jam. I am thinking we need a strawberry pie.. shortcake and other strawberry desserts! Maybe even strawberry muffins to freeze?

I checked on them this morning. Everything sealed well. They do look alittle liquid-y to me. I’m hoping they set better in the next few days. This is the first thing I have canned this summer! Even if they are more on the liquid side, we will use it for strawberry lemonade, on top of icecream, with milk, in cakes, and whatever else I can think of! Nothing is wasted.

I will keep you posted on how well they end up setting.
