Strawberry white wine jam

Adventures in Canning

Strawberry white wine jam

Since we had picked a bunch of strawberries this past weekend, Mike and I decided to try our hand at canning. Though there were a few minor mishaps along the way, the end product looks (and tastes) pretty darn good.

Ingredients

Makes just over 1.5L of jam

  • 3 Cups of mashed strawberries
  • 1 1/2 Cups of white wine
  • 1 packet of pectin
  • 4 Cups of white sugar

Directions

  1. Hull and mash the strawberries (because the leaves don’t tend to taste too good)
  2. Put strawberries, wine and pectin in a big pot and bring to a boil
  3. Once boiling, add the sugar and boil hard for one minute
  4. Can like any other jam*

*This is of course, where we ran in to a little bit of trouble between the boiling of the jars and then the accidental boiling of the snap lids and then the needing to go out and get more snap lids. If you’ve already done any sort of canning before, this part will be a cinch
