Fresh Strawberry Jam

My Grandma Webb was an amazing cook.  One of my absolute favorite traditions was getting to pick out a jar of jam or apple butter from her freezer on my birthday.  What a wonderful treat!!  In honor of her, my girls and I love to make a batch of strawberry jam to share with family and friends. I hope this will inspire you to carry on this fun tradition with your loved ones.

2 - 8 oz. jars

1 2/3 cup strawberries, hulled, mashed or pureed well

2/3 cup granulated sugar or sweetener
