First on my list....strawberry jelly! I love strawberry jelly but I do not like biting into a berry; instead I prefer the jelly to be smooth. In the past I would mash the berries with a potato masher but this time I put the berries in my food processor; it worked perfectly!
While cooking the jelly I got to thinking how the pureed berries made me think of syrup. I love strawberry syrup! A quick Internet search produced....NOTHING!!!!! Well, nothing that sounded like normal syrup to me. So, I decided I would try making up my own recipe......My oh my was it ever a success! I doubled the Sure-Jell recipe used for making the jelly and only added one pouch of powdered pectin to the recipe. I cooked it just like jelly and the end result was a perfect thick wonderful tasting strawberry syrup!
When my day in the kitchen was over I had 7-jars (8 oz size) of jelly and 6-pints of syrup. All the canning has me excited about the upcoming canning season.
