Today Athena and I made 106 cups of strawberry freezer jam. It was a very perfect way to spend a day when the temperature outside was 106! We each have a freezer full of assorted sizes of jam. Big ones for the family. Smaller ones for camping or gift giving.
Just in case you were wondering...to make 106 cups of jam you need:
- 28 lbs. of strawberries
- 30 lbs of sugar
- 16 cups of corn syrup
- 4 cups of lemon juice
- 16 pkgs. of MCP Fruit Pectin
- 106 assorted containers
- 2 Grande Lattes from Starbucks
- 1 swimming pool & 1 sprinkler for the kids
- and about 12 hours!
