I love rain. Especially the rain that comes from nowhere. One minute, I was out enjoying the sunshine and the next it was raining and hailing! I retreated to my living room (but not before getting hit with hail!) and snapped a few pics!
I finally decided what to make with my freshly picked strawberries: strawberry freezer jam! After a quick stop at the store for some pectin, I was ready!
I assembled the ingredients (freezer jars, sugar, berries, and pectin).
Washed the berries thoroughly!
Smashed the strawberries...that was the fun part!!! :)
Mixed the sugar and pectin and then added the strawberries and stirred for 3 minutes.
Then I poured the mixture in the freezer jars and let sit (and thicken) for 30 minutes before freezing!
I made freezer jam last year (on a much larger scale) and I couldn't believe how good it was! It's so nice to have fresh tasting jam in the middle of winter. I really like to use mine on homemade vegan english muffins!
