Tips For Canning Strawberry Jam

There are two methods of canning, water bath canning, and pressure canning. Typically, jams and jellies are canned using the water bath method.

Water bath canning is normally used for high-acidic foods. The time and temperature used for water bath canning are key components to help detroy mild, yeast, and enzymes that can cause ill effects like spoiling.

Pressure canning is the only method that’s acceptable to use when preserving low-acidic food items. Pressure canning is different from water bath canning because the foods are not only under pressure, but a pressure canner has the ability to get much hotter.

It’s very important to use verified recipes from a reputable canning website and follow the recipes exactly.

Foods That Are Typically Water Bath Canned

  • Tomatoes
  • Jams and Jellies
  • Salsa
  • Some condiments
  • Pickles
  • Chutneys
  • Pie fillings
  • Sauces
  • Fruit Juice

Some of the food items like pickles are actually low-acidic food, however pickles are typically made with vinegar, which is very acidic.

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!

    Fantastic¡. For the first time I come across a recipe for strawberry jam and it doesn’t end up in a disaster. I was nervous about adding the pectin before the sugar but I resisted the urge to do their the classic way.

  2. I have to figure out what beauty berries are and if they exist in my area (where my land is). I LOVE blueberries and plan to plant some this coming year. Your jam is beautiful and I love the jars.

    1. Hey Dawn! Beautyberries are found in the U.S.A., Australia, and parts of Asia. So if you live in one of these areas you may just find it in your backyard! They populate very well. The birds carry the seeds around, and then it makes more plants.

      I love blueberries too. I need to plant some too!

      Thank you for all of your compliments! I just love finding pretty jars to put my canned items in.

      I love it when you stop by! Godspeed in the New Year! <3 <3 <3

  3. My new absolute favorite jam is blueberry lime from the ball canning book. I didn’t think I would love it so much but it’s addictive. I’m out and craving it so bad, guess I’ll be making jam this week!

    1. Oh my, that jam sounds awesome! I will have to check that out. I have not made any blueberry jam yet. I bet my boys would absolutely love it! Have fun making some jam!

      That is my favorite part about it. Jams bought in the store are loaded with ingredients! They do not need to be. It tastes so good without all of the crap!
