I spent an hour hulling and slicing the berries - 2 gallons in all.
K2 requested a few batches of her favorite Strawberry Vanilla Jam. It's an easy recipe and makes a delicious jam. I made two big batches
Strawberry Vanilla Jam
5 cups sliced strawberries
1 cup water
5 tablespoons low sugar pectin
3 cups sugar
2 tablespoons vanilla extract
Crush the berries and put them in a big pot with the water and pectin. Stir to dissolve the pectin. Bring to a hard rolling boil. Boil 1 minute. Add sugar and vanilla and stir well until dissolved. Return to hard boil. Boil hard for 1 minute. Ladle into jars.
Yield: 3.5 pints
I don't think jam could get much easier than that.
