Have you ever made your own jam? It’s probably easier than you think. Strawberry Jam is nothing short of amazing on a piece of warm toast. With my Homemade Strawberry Jam Recipe, breakfast never tasted so good!
This Strawberry Jam Recipe 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’ve made beautyberry jelly, but basically because it grows in my backyard. I love free food. We get blueberries too, but I’ve been freezing them for smoothies. Maybe next year I can make some jam with them! The kids would love that!
