So why on earth would anyone go this trouble to make strawberry, or any other, jam when it can be bought at the store!
Hubby, Mr. Cooki, (did I mention I have my own Santa Baby ;)) came into the kitchen to empty the trash can which was rather overflowing thanks to me! I thought he was going to say something about the trash being full (feeling just a little guilty here….) so I was ready with my comeback. Furiously shaking the jar of fresh made strawberry jam, with my wet hands on a wet jar. All the flavors are blending and…
All over the kitchen floor. My washed-that-day kitchen floor, was now splattered with my fresh and homemade strawberry jam. It was EVERYWHERE. The glass from the jar I was shaking included.
Using the Ball instant pectin makes it so easy. Next time (yeah, I know) I'll use just a smidge less sugar as it was too sweet for me. Even though the recipe only needs 1/2 cup it was too much for me.
