Strawberry Jam

Well, what do you do with 30 pounds of freshly picked strawberries? Make strawberry jam. Josie, my 31/2 year old was very excited to make jam.

We started by mashing up 20 cups of strawberries.

We then added 28 cups of sugar (that's about 15 pounds) and 4 boxes of pectin.

It had to be done in the turkey fryer because my soup stockpot was full just after measuring out the sugar.

We made a ton of jam---which is great because I like to give it away as much as I like to make it. And, it was delicious!!
