So for my second attempt I was definitely going to try a new recipe and found something with lots of instruction and advice. Check out the recipe I used here (while the page is entirely in comic sans I will forgive the author because my jam turned out!).
This jam adventure ended in much, much, much better results. I was able to make 4 jars of strawberry jam and although I initially thought it was too sweet once it set the intense sugar taste faded a bit - thank goodness!
|The kitchen set up - lots of pots!|
|2 cups of crushed strawberries|
|Cooling and hopefully setting|
|A little bit lighter looking from a different angle|
|Close up - the fruit looks like it floated to the top a little bit|
|A bit blurry, but it set well (hooray!!)|
|Crazy jam lady (with post-gym hair)|
|Omnomnom! It was super tasty!|
There will be definitely more jam making in my future, perhaps just with less sugar!
