Strawberry Freezer Jam

  Right now we are in temporary housing while we wait for the closing of our old home and the closing of our new home.  However, I knew we could not miss out on strawberries this year no matter how tiny my kitchen:)

We found a little farm that I'm sad to say the owners are too old to take care of so this is their last year:(  We picked for about two hours....

As you can see we picked a lot!

I then put them in a water bath, and then I took the stems off.

For each batch I used:
1. 2 cups of crushed strawberries, not to much you want to see some pieces of fruit
2. 4 cups of sugar and let that sit with the berry mixture for ten minutes
3. Then take 3/4 cup of water and stir into the suregell mixture for 3 minutes. 
4. I then put the strawberry mixture in it and let it all get warm before pouring into jars.

I then set the jars out for 24 hours and listen for the popping sound of sealing!

As of today I have canned 34 jars of delicious yumminess!

and of course some homemade strawberry shortcake!

Enjoy your day!
