Last summer I listed and sold a great collection of vintage 1930s-1970s recipes in a menu maker card file. See the listing here.
Having a hard time parting with this item, I took an hour (or two) to read and photocopy some of the most interesting recipes. I am thrilled with the one titled Prize Strawberry Jam. I made it yesterday.
So simple and easy. I picked berries that morning and was surprised I had enough berries for two recipes in this bowl.
When you start with a dry pan, adding just berries and sugar it’s surprising how fast they liquefy.
I did the recipe twice over instead of doubling it and had a lasagna size pan of jam cooling by the end.
I left it out covered overnight and it was nice and thick this morning.
The kids and I had PB&J for breakfast.
To make it even simpler, I don’t can – I freeze. Just leave an inch of room at the top in your mason jars for expansion.
Give it a try and let me know what you think!
