strawberry jam
06/23/05 11:30 AM

I probably should have posted this earlier for southern people. I am making mine today. This is my favorite jam recipe and I have used it for 4 years now. It is vegan since it has no gelatin or anything like that.

Strawberry jam:
2 quarts (8c) crushed ripe strawberries (use potato masher)
6c. sugar

Heat in large pot. Simmer/boil for 40 minutes, skimming the foam on the top every few minutes and stirring very often. Put in sterilized jars (boiled 10 min) and process for 5 min. Half pint jars, leave 1/4 in headspace. Or just use fresh or freeze. No need to can.
I still have 4 jars from last year left! But I eat it pretty often. This jam is runnier than most but fresher tasting and can also be used for cake/ice cream/waffle topping or stir into yogurt and that kind of thing. It is thicker when cold.

IBS-A for 20 years with terrible bloating and gas. On the diet since April 2004. Remember this from Heather's information pages:
"You absolutely must eat insoluble fiber foods, and as much as safely possible, but within the IBS dietary guidelines. Treat insoluble fiber foods with suitable caution, and you'll be able to enjoy a wide variety of them, in very healthy quantities, without problem." Please eat IF foods!
