Homemade Strawberry Jam Recipe

One of the activities that we enjoy most is going down the road to the berry patch to pick fruit. Strawberry season was in full swing a couple weeks back, so we trekked out to get some. Picking their own fruit is a fun, education, and delicious experience for the kids.

Although we enjoyed most of the strawberries cut up and eaten fresh, I used some of them to make homemade strawberry jam. What is it about using freshly picked berries that make the jam so delicious?  This is a must try recipe especially if your kids love peanut butter and jelly sandwiches the way mine do. Grab some strawberries and mix up a batch for yourself. Don't miss the FREE printable recipe card at the bottom of this post either. You may never buy store-bought jams and jellies again...
