strawberry jam challenge

I've felt like challenging myself lately. Usually when it comes to all things kitchen I defer to my Husband or my Mum. If I feel like tackling something new I talk
it over with one of them and then usually persuade one of them to help/ supervise.  But more and more as I examine what my little family eats and what I keep in the fridge or pantry I find myself wanting to try new things.

So today I made strawberry jam. All by myself. Strawberries are in season here at the moment and I picked up two big punnets for $6 the other day. One for eating and one for the jam. My mother in law had shared an easy jam recipe with me over the weekend and I was all prepped up to try it. 

The finished jars are in the fridge now so maybe by tonight or tomorrow I'll be able to give you the results of the official taste testers. I have a sneaking suspicion that it may be a bit sweet for our taste and maybe a tad runny but hey, you don't know until you try right?
