OUR WOLD - Strawberry Jam


The summers gone but I still managed to get enough to make
some jam for my eldest (married) granddaughter who 
just loves the stuff


all cut up


and bubbling in the pot


and the finished product, two and a half kilos of strawberries 
make six and a half jars 
(I know one is already missing, G-d loves it with her yoghurt)

sometimes I think I'm a little crazy, the jam I make works 
out at being a little more expensive than the best quality
bought version 

but then, mine only contains organic strawberries and sugar


time for elevenses, strawberry jam on toast with a
glass of milk, yummm . . .

Linking with OUR WORLD

  2. Yum indeed. And your insanity is shared. My tomato chutney costs more than any I have ever bought - but the taste leaves it for dead. And I am sure that is also true of your strawberry jam. I am not a big fan of jam but have a recipe for raspberry jam which, if ever I have a surplus of the divine berry, I will try.

  5. Oh, I was saying on another blog today that you don't make strawberry jam from scratch because its less expensive. You do it because its better and worth every cent. Good for you.

  10. Lots of jam gets made here too - six different kinds last year, and it's delicious in the middle of winter.
