Strawberry Freezer Jam

Last night, Jeremy was bored and wanting to do something. Now because we live in a small town, there really isn't much to do. Like nothing at all, at least when the weather isn't nice. So we did what we usually do when we're bored - we found a reason to go to Walmart (allergy medicine, because man has this spring been brutal.)

Upon our arrival at Walmart, we saw this:

Now we couldn't pass up a deal like that. At first we weren't sure what to do with the four pounds we were buying so I called my dad to find out how to make jam. He told me what I needed and Jeremy and I decided to make freezer jam since it sounded a lot easier. Plus we had everything we needed, once we grabbed some pectin.

So that's how we spent our Sunday evening - making freezer jam. We used the recipe from the box, which can be found here. It was pretty easy and turned out really well. We are pleased and will be making it again sometime, maybe with a different type of fruit.

It's even better when eaten on some homemade bread!

Now all you need is some hot from the oven homemade bread and butter fo your jam to go on. So simple yet so good.
