CS-041: Let’s Make Great Strawberry Jam

June 26, 2020 in Canning Basics, Podcast Episodes, Tips & Tricks

The strawberries have arrived and it’s time to make strawberry jam. 

Today’s show lists the 10 things I learned for making the best strawberry jam.  We get answers to the following, as well as many more questions —

  • How to make jam without pectin.
  • What to do about all that foam that forms on top of boiling jams.
  • How many strawberries does it take to make jam?
  • What are the best sized jars for home canning?

As a reminder, this podcast relies heavily on information and expertise provided by the USDA, the National Center for Food Preservation, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the Ball Blue Book of Preserving.
