I used the new food mill my hubby gave me for my birthday. He doesn't like "chunky" jams. The food mill quickly pureed the fruit into a thick, smooth consistency.
Thanks to my hubby for taking pictures while I worked :)
The jam turned out beautiful -- literally, I think it's my prettiest batch of jam ever. It's a bright berry red color, and it tastes so bright and fresh.
I spent part of an already busy weekend making this jam, but I'm glad I took the time, especially since strawberries are back to full price. In a few weeks, the U-Pick berry patches will be open, and I can make my first batch of fresh Iowa strawberry jam. Can't wait!
