Easy Strawberry Freezer Jam Recipe - Plus a GIVEAWAY!

 My absolute favorite flavor of jelly, jam and/or spread is Strawberry. Yeah, I sometimes get a craving for grape or peach but, I always go back to strawberry. Growing up, my granny, mom and aunts made all sorts of jelly/jam. Mostly blackberry since we had tons of blackberry bushes but, I do remember them making strawberry and peach freezer jam every now and then.

I have NEVER canned before so I knew making a freezer jam would be a great place to start my jelly/jam making adventure. Since you don't have to actually can this jam it makes it super easy for beginners.

A few weeks ago I headed over to my Aunt Brenda's house and she taught me how to make our Mamie's Strawberry Freezer Jam. I could not get over how easy it was!

Strawberry Freezer Jam
Makes 5 8oz Jars
2 Cups Hulled Strawberries - Crushed
4 Cups Sugar
1 Box Surgel (pectin)
3/4 Cup Water
Fresh Fruit (or fruit fresh) optional

Directions
In a large bowl, combine strawberries and sugar. Allow to sit for 10 minutes.
While waiting for strawberries, combine water and Surgel in a medium pot. Bring to a boil, stirring constantly. Allow to boil for 3 minutes, continuing to stir. Pour Surgel mixture into strawberry mixture and stir for 3 minutes.
Pour jam into sanitized jars, leaving 1/2 inch space at the top.
Screw lids on jars and allow to sit at room temperature for 24 hours.
After 24 hours, place in freezer until ready to use. Store in freezer at least 24 hours (or overnight if you can't wait) before using.
Refrigerate after opening.

 Now, how would like a chance to win everything you need to make your own Strawberry Freezer Jam? 

Winner will receive 1 box of 6 8oz Glass Jars, Strawberry Recipe Cards and a $20 Walmart Gift Card to purchase remaining ingredients/items needed.

Strawberries and Cream Instant Oatmeal | Recipe

I don't know about you but, we go through oatmeal like that is the only thing to eat on this planet!   Seriously a TON! My youngest would eat it for every meal and snack....every day....if I let her. Yes, the little packs can be cheap (if you can find a coupon and get them on sale) but it still adds up.  I used things I already had on hand so there was no extra cost to make this.  FREE is ALWAYS good!   I tried before to make little packets to keep on hand but that was a complete fail.  I have since reworked the recipe and am happy with the results.  I decided to just keep the oatmeal in a glass container this time and scoop out what we need, when we need it.  You can also make this into packets by just scooping the desired amount into zip-top bags. {Strawberries & Cream Instant Oatmeal}   12 Servings 6 Cups Quick Cook Oats 1 1/2 Cups Oat Powder 2 Cups Powdered Milk 1 - 1 1/2 Cup Sugar 1 Cup Freeze Dried Strawberries Directions f

Getting ready for summer with #MyHartstrings #cbias

Is it warming up where you are?  It has been warming up here for a few weeks now.  With spring break over and the temps slowly getting warmer and warmer, it can only mean one thing.... SUMMER is just around the corner! We like to spend our summers at the lake or at the pool.  Last year we practically lived in our bathing suits!  Since we spent SO much time in our suits last year, they were looking a little warn by the end of summer.  Plus both girls have grown so much this year, they needed new suits. I have been peeking at some suits on Hartstrings.com and decided to go ahead and get new suits!  We may be going to Houston soon so the girls will need something for that trip.  It was REALLY hard to decide on what suit to get the girls, they have such cute options.  Mads is old enough to pick for herself (somewhat) and MG really doesn't care as long as it includes pink. I pulled up Hartstrings.com and let the girls have at it.  I did guide MG into the green and p
