The biggest reason why I wanted a garden was to feed our family less processed food and to know exactly where that food was coming from. So, with our first strawberry harvest, we made jam. Delicious strawberry jam with only 3 ingredients: organic berries from our front yard garden, organic lemons, and organic sugar. This yielded 3 jars of the best jam I've ever had.
Now, while I want to learn to can, I'm not set up for that just yet, so I did refrigerator jam and froze/ gave away the excess.
Needless to say, my boys are in love. No requests for store bought jam here!
