Strawberry Heaven!

One of the grocery stores that I frequent every week has had strawberries for 99c a pound for the last 2 weeks. We've been eating a lot fresh and I froze some for smoothies but last week I made jam!
I grew up canning with my grandmother and mom when I was little. My grandparents always had a huge garden and we'd can salsa, tomatoes, pickles, pears, green beans, pickled okra and it goes on and on.

I used this recipe that I found on Darby's blog because she made jam 2 weeks ago.

It turned out great; all my jars pinged and it's starting to set. I purchased my jars used from a local greenhouse/garden shop down the road.

Grandma would be proud! I can't wait to can all kinds of things from the garden.
