Strawberry Jam advice
From The Vollmer Farm, in Bunn, NC:
People always ask about jam recipes, and although we’d love to elaborate on an age-old, handed-down family recipe, we can’t. Everyone we know uses the recipes on the inside of the Sure-Jell box. We can, however, give you a few critical tips:
You can use either regular Sure-Jell or Sure-Jell Light for strawberry jam. Both can be found in the supermarket. We like to use Sure-Jell Light. It uses much less sugar and the jam is equally as good.
Check the expiration date on the Sure-Jell box. Do not purchase if dated the same year you are making the jam, or you waste a lot of time for nothing.
A “rolling boil” means really bubbling. Juice is flying everywhere. Wear your apron!
Follow the directions precisely.
