Class Project

Make your own batch of slammin' strawberry jam

Presenting the Easiest Way to Make Your Own Slammin' Strawberry Jam: A Step-by-Step Guide
Preserving our own food is a timeless tradition that our ancestors took part in for many centuries. Not only did it enable them to enjoy fresh, nutritious food all year round, it became a time for family and friends to gather together. It's a shame that this tradition is becoming a lost art so I have made it my life's goal to pass on this wonderful knowledge. It's not intimidating or difficult - it just takes a bit of patience, love and practice. I know you will enjoy preserving and eating your creations as much as I do. Come join me!
