Yesterday I was on a mission... I wanted to make Strawberry freezer Jam much like Kimba did over at
A Soft Place to Land. Due to my lack of patients and inability to follow directions (that's why I make a better cook than a baker) I set out to make my jam.
My kids and I trekked to the Farmers Market and bought 4 pints of strawberries.
We came home, washed and mashed them just like the directions said but here is where I went wrong. I bought Sure Jell and their recipe calls for 4 cups of sugar to 2 cups of strawberries... Well I know somewhere I read that you could do 1 1/2 cups of sugar to 4 cups of strawberries ~ after some research it was a different pectin product that has this recipe. Well being the sceptic that I am I figure the pectin that I had would work just as well with the ingredients I had in mind. Well wrong-o-reindeer...
I now have 7 jars of strawberry syrup of sorts. It still taste great. I know because I was bound and determine to have some on my toast this morning. With the lack of sleep
I had last night I came up with a few other uses for my strawberry syrup... Warm some up to pour on pancakes, ice cream topping and add to home made ice cream. I was tired so that was all I could come up with...
As always, Karie
