We had a friend give us a big container of strawberries and then there are a few from our plants and a half a container from the strawberries. We knew we would never eat them all before they went bad, so we decided to make Jam.

|Pooka starts mashing the strawberries|
|Boil, boil, toil and trouble...|
Then we cooked them. Auntie (My adopted sister) Steph gave me a recipe book for canning over the weekend and some pectin. She is a wonderful woman who is so glad that Pooka is learning these things. Anyway, the Jam recipe came from Auntie Steph's book, it was Sugar, lemon juice, pectin and strawberries. This is it boiling.
|It looks like Jam|
As Daddy likes to say is it looks good, now the test is waiting a few weeks to crack one and hope its not furry. Thanks for the vote of confidence Daddy. But he's right. Now to wait and see if it tastes better in a few weeks.
