If you want the best jam, you've got to make your own

We lucked out when we bought our house. There were strawberries AND raspberries growing in the back yard. Every June the strawberries come in. And as long as you weed them and make sure they have enough water, the berries come in droves for a few sweet weeks. This year we've made strawberry ice cream, strawberry rhubarb crisp, strawberry spinach salad and strawberry smoothies. It was about time to make some jam, don't you think?
And what's the best use of strawberry jam? Peanut butter and jelly sandwiches, of course. On whole wheat because it's the best!
