A Strawberry Shout-Out!

My strawberry jam recipe was featured on a great website called BudgetSmartGirl.com. I feel so honored!


Just in case you find yourself drawn to the amazing deals on strawberries right now, here’s my recipe:

6 oz organic strawberries

3/4 cup sugar
juice from 1/2 lemon

Mash strawberries with a potato masher in a saucepan. Put over medium heat and heat until the strawberry juice has thickened, approximately 10-15 minutes (be careful not to burn!). Add sugar and lemon juice and continue heating — stirring often — until desired consistency is reached. Keep in mind that this jam will not be the gelatinous consistency of jelly, but a little looser and kinder.

    Congrats! I can never keep strawberries around long enough to consider doing anything but straight consumption!
