State Fair Strawberry Jam Recipe


Finished Jam

What a wonderful coincidence that strawberries are at their best right around fair season. These half-pints are ready for the Western Idaho State Fair next week. The color, texture and flavor are terrific, even if they don't win the blue ribbon.

Here's the simple recipe that comes from the Ball Blue Book of Preserving, my bible for putting up jams and preserves.
