Strawberry Jam 2010

Pin It


Remember those strawberries from last week? One of the things I made with them was jam. Lots of jam. I usually make regular cooked jam but I wasn't looking forward to making it in the heat we've been having. Instead, I bought No Cook Freezer Jam Gel  (I used these gels from Bernardin and Club House ). So easy to make! And a lot less sugar compared to regular jam recipes. I like the taste of this jam better- it's more strawberryish. I have plenty of jars in the freezer for the days when picking strawberries in the sun is a faded memory.


In the garden, my daisies have bloomed. This double petaled variety reminds me of fried eggs!


I thought I'd share these photos for both the Weekend Cooking and Saturday Farmer's Market.

  3. I adore freezer jam - and one reason is the less sugar.

    And now I **must** have those daisies. Will plant the seeds next spring.

  6. Your jam looks yummy. The gel is new to me. I'm going to check it out as I'd like to use less sugar too.

    Yes, your flowers do look like fried eggs. Cute.

  9. I made the cooked kind of strawberry jam during our strawberry season and it is awful hot to make. Your freezer jam looks wonderful and I love the sound of less sugar! I may have to try that next year.

    And your flowers are gorgeous! Thank you for sharing! :)

  11. I've only made the cooked kind too-- never even heard of freezer kind-- but I sure started freezing chopped tomatoes for soup on my sis-in-laws recommendation. I will definitely try this! thanks!
