Canning - Part Two

 I now have tried a second time at this at of canning & yes I now have jam!! It jellied with the CERTO, I didn't know which one to use, there was liquid & jello type packages, so Bill, feeling my frustration bought all the types, hoping for a successful batch & Happy Wife- Happy Life. LOL
The first batch was with the liquid & those are the dark red tops, the second batch - with the lighter coloured tops, was with the light CERTO  which claims to have 33% less sugar ( the ratio was 6 cups of strawberries & 4 1/2 cups of sugar - the other was 4 cups of strawberries to 7 cups of sugar ) Either way they both looked great & they jellied!!

I'm going to use CERTO from now on - however the strawberry sauce will be good on other things too! Thanks Julia for the idea of pancakes, that one never came to mind, YUM!
Now with the strawberries done & shelved, I'll have to watch to see what else is in season from the local farmers.

  1. Now that's what I call a productive day. I'm so glad that your jam making was a great success. I love the light and dark cover idea to identify your batches.

    Have a great days. JB
