Refrigerator Strawberry Jam

There is nothing better than a toasted English Muffin topped with homemade Strawberry Jam! It is so easy to make Refrigerator Strawberry Jam and takes very little time. It is practically fool-proof so any level of cook can make this! Keep in mind, this is not canned so the consistency isn’t as thick and it won’t last in the refrigerator as long, only about 2 weeks. It will be gone before that in my house! The taste, however, is as delicious as any other jam.

    • What a nice gift for the teachers! I canned it when my kids were young as well. I stopped when they moved out and now the grandkids are here from Thursday night through Sunday night while their mom works so I am bringing back a lot of the recipes I use to make. Peanut butter is a staple in our house once again…hahaha
