Jam how-tos

(article, Culinate staff)

Blogger Marisa McClellan (formerly of Slashfood, now of Food In Jars) posted an easy recipe for strawberry jam this week that sounds delicious and makes canning look easy: 

bq. Of all the jams I’ve made so far this year, this one is my very favorite. There’s something special about strawberry jam and when it’s scented with vanilla and so rich in color, it’s just that much more amazing. Get yourself some strawberries and make this jam. 

If you can't make the jam, however, leave a comment on the blog post by Friday and you might win a half pint anyway.

Meanwhile, over at the Kitchn, they're whipping up strawberry jam with tarragon.

Need more instruction? In this video from Cooking Up a Story, Marge Braker, friend and former business partner of Culinate blogger [/mix/dinner_guest?author=4457 "Harriet Fasenfest",] shows how make small-batch strawberry jam.
