{CL recipe} :: my first strawberry jam

One thing you should know about me is that I never get a complicated recipe right the first time. So if I can do it, anyone can!

I was really excited to make Canadian Living’s strawberry jam recipe from scratch. I’ve always loved the idea of making jam, but never did it.

To be honest, I just completed it and I don’t even know if I did it right (I’m pretty sure I burned a layer of strawberries at the bottom of the pot… oops). Don’t let this dissuade you from trying out this recipe because it looks and smells AH-mazing. Just keep in mind that “jamming” isn’t for the faint of heart.

I also went into this knowing that there’s a good chance I would mess it up… but that’s just kind of how I roll! I mess things up the first time around, and get better and better each time. It seems it would be FAR too convenient to hit a homerun the first time.

I need to let the jars sit overnight, so I will report back with the results.

Check out Canadian Living for the recipe here and see my post on the CL website here.
