Snowy Day Strawberry Jam


Strawberries are crazy cheap and plentiful at the grocery store so my friend Lindsay and I decided to make some strawberry jam. We hunkered down in her adorable apartment with her dog and cat to keep us company and got to work.


I've never canned a thing in my life but Lindsay was taught by her grandmother and mother how to can and preserve. One very important thing lesson that she told me was that you should never make jam by yourself. You always need someone there to help you. 

  
Do you see Hannah the dog in this photo? 

When we were finished we had twelve jars of strawberry-vanilla bean-earl grey tea jam and a whole lot of snow waiting for us outside. Perfect.
