Making Strawberry Jam With Grammy

Grammy purchased homegrown strawberries from one of the teachers at her school and brought them up to share with us and make strawberry jam with Reagan and Kennedy. The girls and I have never made jam before so this was a first for us. 
 First you smash the strawberries

 Then you add the sugar
 or spill it...
 Mix Surejell (splg?) and water
 Mix the cold ingredients

 Mix the hot ingredients
 Mix the two together (Kennedy thought that was a job for Grammy)
 More mixing
 And some pouring (Grammy was such a sport to let Kennedy try and get the jam into the jars)

 Twelve jars of super yummy homemade strawberry jam from freshly picked strawberries! The best ingredient is lots of love!
 Here are some cute pictures I caught of the girls during our strawberry jam making process
 Why wait for the jam when you can enjoy the strawberries?
 Working hard

Thank you Grammy for doing this with us! We appreciate the experience and the delicous results!
