Fruits of our Labor

Lookee what we did today!! My wonderful Aunt and I got together and made strawberry jam! YUM!! We are pretty no-nonsense about it....we simply use the recipe from the Sure-Jell package insert which gives super easy, simple directions to follow. Here in Florida, it is strawberry season and they are absolutely marvelous right now! So here you have it....for about $30 for strawberries, supplies and then 3 hours of our time, we put up 12 pints of jam, 12 half-pints (the jelly size jars) and several batches of strawberry puree for the freezer. We'll use the puree for smoothies, milkshakes and margaritas in the future! OH HOW YUMMY!!!

Mmmmm....homemade strawberry jam is a beautiful thing! Strawberries aren't in season yet in Texas, but it won't be long now.
