Super Easy Strawberry Jam

SUPER EASY - SUPER YUMMY!


Wow! I can't get over how easy this is! No slaving over a hot stove, no excessive amounts of extra sugar.

Just two simple ingredients!!



8 ounces Dried Pineapple, cut into small chunks
1½ lbs. Fresh Strawberries, hulled, washed, well drained
Yields 3½ cups jam

It is necessary to have a commercial food processor or  blender or something with a really good motor because the pineapple bits take some extra  power to process.

Prepare strawberries and pineapple as directed. Place strawberries into food processor or blender and process slightly;


 then add pineapple gradually and process until smooth.

it's fuzzy I know, but my left hand isn't very
adept yet at handling the camera☺

 Pour into freezer containers, I like to use glass pint jars.

These are the ratios that I used to bring it to a consistency I liked. If you want it thicker use more pineapple. It does jell and get slightly firmer when refrigerated. It is delicious!

I had a tube of refrigerated crescents on hand and baked them this morning to use in taste testing, melt.in.your.mouth!

Hats off to my sister Becky for sharing the recipe/idea with me. Thank You Becky!
