Strawberries are one of the first fruits of the summer, and a great excuse to dust off your canning equipment and get jammin’!
Strawberries are naturally high acid and high sugar, making them perfect for water bath canning. Strawberries don’t need anything special added for canning. It can be as simple as 1 ingredient strawberry jam, cooked down to thicken.
Want to can without pectin? No problem.
Sweeten with honey, maple or Splenda? Go right ahead.
No sugar instead? That works too!
Try mixing in other fruits, spicing things up with herbs, or making a creative strawberry syrup.
Whatever you do, don’t limit yourself to just jam. There are dozens of creative ways to can strawberries. My favorite is a simple low sugar strawberry jam. If you’re lucky enough to come upon a patch of wild strawberries, those little beauties can be made into a wild strawberry jam to preserve their intense flavor for the winter months.
