If you've never tried making your own jam because you're kind of afraid of the whole canning process (like me), you should try freezer jam. It's so easy, and the jam tastes incredibly fresh because the fruit has not been cooked. And, no high fructose corn syrup, preservatives, or artificial coloring or flavorings to be found! All you need is:
Certo fruit pectin
A bunch of fresh fruit, plus sugar, lemon juice, and water
And when you're done, you have lots of these
Strawberry is my boys' favorite, so that's the only kind I've made so far. I plan to make blueberry later this summer.
