Earlier today I shared my favorite homemade white bread and now I’m sharing my favorite homemade strawberry jam. I remember helping my grandma make this as a little girl and it has been a favorite of mine ever since. I only make it once a year because it is definitely a treat, but it brings back wonderful memories from my childhood when I helped my grandma in the kitchen. She always said I was the best “taste tester.” I was always happy to have that job! ;)
Homemade jam is actually really easy to make and SO much better than store bought jam. Give it a try. You will soon be hooked! It is so delicious!
If you do not have a blender, you can use a potato masher as well. I use my Blentec for everything! :) I have to say my strawberry huller is amazing too. It made prepping the strawberries that much easier!
I also included some free jam labels for you guys! Double the batch and hand some out to your friends and family. Jam makes a great homemade gift around the holidays.

I printed the labels out on sticker paper and punched them out with my handy dandy scalloped punch. You could also just print them on card stock and attach the square tags with string to the top of the jar. :)
If you’re looking to use other fruits in your jam, I found this cool tool to help you figure out the measurements. Check it out here.
Have you made any jam this season?
