After having lots of fun berry picking we had to decide what to do with all our strawberries. We all agreed on JAM. We had a great time making it, and it was much easier than I thought. This recipe was very kid-friendly because you don't even have to cook it.
4 cups crushed strawberries
1 1/2 cups sugar
5 jelly jars or other freezer proof containers
Instant Fruit Pectin (found at grocery store)
1. Stir sugar and pectin in a bowl
2. Add crushed fruit and stir 3 minutes (we used a potato masher)
3. Ladle jam into clean containers and let stand 30 minutes
*It keeps in the fridge for three weeks and in the freezer for up to a year.
