Low Sugar Strawberry Freezer Jam 2

Easy Strawberry Freezer Jam ~ With 1/2 The Sugar

Every year we make a bunch of strawberry freezer jam to fill our big freezer to last us until next strawberry season. We have now realized the kids will no longer eat store bought jam anymore.

The first couple of years we made normal freezer jam, following all the regular freezer strawberry jam recipes are made. Last year was the first year we decided to only add 1/2 the amount of sugar to the recipe. The original recipe calls Continue Reading…

It has taken us quite a few years to switch our eating habits from what we grew up eating. We never knew that there was anything that was really different about purchasing organic food, versus regular food. Well other than the price. Since we started on this journey here is what we have managed to switch over: Our milk. We own part of a herd and drink raw milk. We have for the last 5 years and NEVER Continue Reading…
