How to make Strawberry Jam

Hello everyone!!! I had a busy week preparing my galley for our next vetting inspection. Well I’m quite confident that we will pass, we need to pass, we’re already thinking of what to buy for that vetting bonus! Counting the chicks before the egg gets hatch is what we do best. =)

So today we will make our homemade fresh strawberry jam. I learn this simple recipe a couple of years ago when I was new to blogging. I met this very charming blogger of kissesfromhome.wordpress.com and I saw her post on how to make homemade strawberries. I promise her that I will try it and serve to my crew with my Swedish Pancakes. I know I did make it and it was delicious and her recipe is perfect.

But due to over procastinating, I did not post it. And now that suddenly I remember it, I can’t find the photos that I shoot on how to make strawberry jam. And the worst part of it is when I try to search for her blog to copy her recipe, the kissesfromhome.wordpress.com doesn’t exist anymore. That was sad, I lost her perfect recipe and now I’m on my own to make mine from what I can remember. And I’m f#*king bad on remembering things.

Anyway, since you are here. We will do it together and hope for the best result!
