Strawberry Jam

As I posted yesterday we went strawberry picking earlier this week, so today I will share my pictures from making jam. I was only able to make 5 pints so I'm hoping I get the chance to go picking again before the season ends here so I can make a few more pints.

 Cleaning the strawberries and removing the stems.

 Already mashed the strawberries with potato
 masher, added sure-jell and sugar and 
now bringing it all to a boil.
 Have my canner and my jars ready.

 Kaitlyn helped pour the jam into the jars.

 Bringing them to a gentle boil.

Gotta love that popping sound that tells 
you your jars sealed.
 Five beautiful pints of jam :)
