Strawberry Jam Forever

Today's summer adventure involved three buckets of fresh, cored, sliced and ready to go Oregon strawberries.  I don't normally have Lilli help out with jam.  Up to now I opted for a cleaner kitchen due to her age.  The whole process would just create a bigger mess letting a 6 year old into the kitchen.  Then, there is the danger factor.... hot liquid doesn't scream SAFE.  But today I let her put an apron on and scoop and stir and wash to her little hearts content.

By the time we were done we had put 24 quarts of strawberries in the freezer for future smoothies and made 8 batches of jam.  We are all looking forward to toast in the morning!
