jammin’


My friend Jamie and I co-write a blog called The Pinterest Project, where we work through Pinterest one pin at a time and blog about it!

Awhile back she posted a recipe for strawberry jam that used only honey, apple and lemon as ingredients (along with strawberries, of course) and I was dying to try it out.  It’s a little bit tough to find jam recipes that don’t include a LOT of sugar so this piqued my interest.

After a failed attempt at flea market shopping (more like the world’s biggest dollar store…), we headed to a local place called The Peach Stand to see if peaches were in season.  There wasn’t much yet in the way of peaches, but we did snatch up some GORGEOUS looking strawberries.

This is a super easy jam, so if you’ve never canned before, give it a shot.

Check out her original post HERE.

Step 1: rinse and cut berries

Step 2: Add honey, freshly squeezed lemon juice & grated apple

Step 3: Boil and mash

Step 4: Pour jam into sterilized jars and process in a water bath.

Step 5: Listen for those awesome little pops that tell you your jars are sealed!  Mmmm, jam.
