8 little Beauties: Strawberry Jam

It's done. And there was just enough left in that measuring cup to sample.

I posted the process here on Flickr if you're interested.

I used to make all of my jam. It's not really that hard. Getting the fruit ready is the most time consuming part. That's why I always like plum jam. In Sept. when the prune plums are ready, they are a cinch to wash, pit and chop in the food processor for jam. And it's the most gorgeous burgundy red color!

For strawberry, I use this little tool that was my mother's. Don't know what it's called, but it works great for crushing berries....or chopping eggs for egg salad!
