Strawberry Jam Time
Wednesday, June 23, 2010
Of course, Strawberry week wouldn't be complete without a good jam recipe. My mom made jam with pectin in it, but I had none so I followed this recipe to make pectin-free jam. Both are delicious, but I think I like the texture of the stuff with pectin in it better. Actually you can use the jam without pectin for some amazing Strawberry Margaritas or Daiquiris as Braden discovered ;) I found the recipe for the pectin jam on Rhonna's blog and you can find her cute labels on the House of 3 website. The DIY Summer Printables has a ton of cute stuff to print out and use for all kinds of summer fun!
The pectin free recipe is from the blog Pastry Heaven, and like I said it was pretty delicious. There's a ton of great recipes on the blog too, such as Not Just Any Cherry Pie. I think we may need to have a Cherry week to try it.
