We Be Jammin'!!
Strawberries! Lots of strawberries! Andrea mushes and cuts through the berries.
Catherine mushes the berries too!
After the berries are sufficiently flattened and "mushed", they go to the stove to cook with a LOT of sugar. Here, a close up of the pot.
Fruit pectin is added shortly before the sauce is added to the jars. Catherine stirs while Andrea adds the pectin.
Ivan picks a packet of pectin and puts it in the pan.
Any foam from the jam should be removed prior to adding it to the jars.Andrea works quickly with the sticky mess!
Ivan quickly scoops the jam mixture up into the jars.
A closeup of the scooping and pouring action.
Beautifully sticky jars!
Tighten those lids!
A variance in color from one batch to the next is due to the ripeness of the berries.
