Sweet as Candy: Homemade Strawberry Jam

This easy recipe can be a great Valentine gift for a teacher, hostess, co-worker or your friends.  I decorated the jar with a simple rustic twine knot, but you can also add a gift tag or ribbon to personalize it.  Use frozen berries now, fresh when they are in season.  This recipe makes one 10 ounce jar, so simply multiply it acccording to how much you need.

You will need:

4 cups strawberries
1 cup sugar

Put ingredients in a large saucepan; bring to a boil

Reduce heat and simmer, stirring and skimming off froth, until slightly thickened, 20 to 30 minutes

Let cool.

Check back tomorrow for a great Valentine dinner idea using this strawberry jam recipe!
