Berry Picking

I picked 20 lbs. of strawberries this week.

Then I turned it into Jam! 48 1/2 pints (8oz.) to be exact.

The pint jars in the back are freezer jam and the smaller jars are old fashion jam.
Both are very easy to make and taste wonderful!! The freezer jam has a brighter color because it doesn't get cooked at all and has pectin. The old fashion jam has only sugar and strawberries.
This was the start of my canning season.
I am looking forward to putting up lots of yummy things this summer!
