Oh, I love jammin'. Which is a good thing, since I have picked or purchased 48 lbs of strawberries this June!
So far this year:
Strawberry Jam with Vanilla Bean and Honey
Strawberry Jam with Vanilla Bean and Agave
Strawberry Rhubarb Jam
Tayberry Jam with Bramble Bush Honey.
And I've just begun...
I love Pomona's Pectin because you don't have to add as much sugar, or even sugar at all. I've been mainly making my jams now with honey or agave. I use about 4 cups mashed berries, one split vanilla bean and about 1 cup of honey or agave.
There will probably be another batch of strawberry jam and at least one more of tayberry in my near future. I was so happy to see tayberries at Emma Lea today. Hurray! I must go back to the u-pick soon. I loooooove them! Then we'll move on to raspberry, apricot, peach...
