Jammin' Jammin' Strawberry Jammin'

I have a Strawberry Shortcake song in my head, "Jammin' jammin' strawberry jammin.'" I don't know if it's from Spenser's CD or a DVD (or perhaps both). Anyway, it must be Strawberry Week over here because I just noticed that all of my posts thus far are strawberry related. (Hmm. Note to self: I must come up with something for tomorrow.)

On Sunday after church I was looking for some family time. We decided to make strawberry jam. I had received a free sample of a no-cook pectin so it involved very little effort. Wash. Cut. Stir. Refrigerate.

Four sets of kids' hands armed with child-friendly knives and it was finished in no time...

Which left time for sampling (before allowing it to set for 24 hours) and ...

playing.

You do such nice things with your kids. Makes six kids look easy! (I'm not fooled tho! I know that it takes a ton of work to make it look easy.)

Looks yummy and that all of you had loads of fun!

Lera, when you are finished with strawberries, do give oranges a try! For me, orange marmalade first then strawberry jam!
