Strawberry Jam

I'm really slow with this post, the pictures have been sitting here a few weeks already. The strawberries are done now, but here's my first try with a cooked strawberry jam without added pectin.

I tried using this epicurious recipe that cooks a portion of the strawberries and then adds the rest fresh at the end. It turned out ok, the kids loved it. It was all gone by the end of the week (along with about four loaves of bread!). I think I still prefer freezer jam, it tastes fresher to me. It was a really good first experience though to walk through the process!

Anyone who makes homemade jam is a hero in my book. I'll be looking for the freezer version.
