Strawberry season

It's strawberry season!! Hooray! Our local grocery store is having an AMAZING deal on strawberries, so my mom and I snatched some up and made freezer jam. I have always been scared to make jam, until I realized how ridiculously easy freezer jam is. And to make things even easier, we found instant pectin. Have you ever used it? All you do is puree the fruit, and in a separate bowl, combine the sugar and pectin (dry) then stir in the fruit until well mixed. Are you kidding? It took like ten minutes. For real. I can never buy store jam again.

We froze some extra strawberries to add to green smoothies. Delish!
