This is a recipe I use to put away strawberry jam for a rainy day. I use a water bath canner. It is a pretty simple recipe, but please do take precautions. See disclaimer.
The kids sure do love it…
Strawberry Jam is probably one of my favorite jams ever. The kids like it also, but of course they do it is a sweet treat for them! We add this sweet treat to our breakfast items like biscuits, pancakes and toast! They make great little homemade gifts for friends and families also.

I would love to make some blueberry jam, oh and grape jelly! Who does not love grape jelly! Yum! I have made beautyberry jelly, but basically because it grows in my backyard. I love free food. We get blueberries too, but I have been freezing them for smoothies. Maybe next year I can make some jam with them! The kids would love that!
