You Are My JAM | Mason Jar Strawberry Jam

I am a berry loving girl so I usually find every way possible to add fruit to the meals I make.

While we were on vacation in Idaho we stayed with friends and they introduced us to homemade biscuits and homemade strawberry jam… I WAS IN HEAVEN!  It was at that moment that I realized that homemade jam… is my JAM!  The day after we got home from Idaho I bought all of the needed ingredients and started making my own jam… and ever since we put jam on just about everything.  I will even go so far as to plan our meals around ways to serve it.  Obsessed much? Sorry not sorry!

Here is a simple recipe for making jam and believe me it is well worth it!  Surprise your loved ones with homemade jam and they will be so impressed that they may even offer to do the dishes!?  The amazing taste will make them believe you slaved away in the kitchen all day, when little do they know, it only took you 20 minutes to make and it didn’t even require stove top cooking!  Now that is my kinda jam!
