• Strawberry Freezer Jam

    Overrun with strawberries

    Are you overrun by strawberries? I am. I started a strawberry patch last summer with stray strawberry plants that were inadvertently donated by my neighbor, and I can’t keep up. The easiest thing I can do right now is make strawberry freezer jam.

    Berries in dish
    My strawberry patch produces a mixture of sweet to tart berries, and together they make great jam (and I threw in a few very sweet store-bought strawberries as well).

    When it’s warm, this jam is great over ice cream or other cold, creamy dessert. And when it’s cold, it’s great with yogurt, crackers, toast, ice pops, tarts, and in cookies.

      This looks great! Any idea on how to deseed the berries?

      Hi Kylie. I don’t mind strawberry seeds, but if you want to get rid of them, you’ll probably need to run the crushed strawberries through a food mill. The nice thing about a Vita-Mix is that if you run it at a high speed, it will break down the seeds – this works with raspberry seeds, so it will probably work with strawberries.

      Yes, but you may need to add water to the cream to get the right consistency. Check on the container...

      Can we use the coconut cream that comes in a container instead of refrigerating coconut milk and taking the cream...
