Canning 4 Complexion!

Newest Page Added!

I'm a canner!  I can EVERYTHING!  Why?  Because I have to.  I literally can not walk into a grocery store and buy things off the shelf due to my tremendous allergies.  So, to survive I had to learn to can my food if I was going to enjoy food with flavor!  I can not just go buy spaghetti sauce, salsa, jam, BBQ Sauce, and more.  As such, I cut my work hours and learned to can!  What has this done for me and my family?  Check out my new page 'Canning 4 Complexion' and you will find out!


Tonight will be one of my favorites and this time of year, it is all about the strawberry!!

Low Sugar Strawberry Jam!

6 cups strawberries, crushed
4 cups of sugar
1 box of Low Sugar Sure Jel
1 cup of water

Wash and stem berries. Crush them but leave small bits for the jam.
In a stainless steel pot add strawberries, water, and sugar and bring to boil. Once it comes to a boil, add pectin. Bring back to a boil and stir for one minute.
Remove from heat (skim foam) and ladle into your prepared jars. Remove air bubbles and fill your jars to 1/4" headspace. Wipe rims clean with a wet paper towel and add hot lids/rings.  Process in water bath for 10 minutes.
