Yummy Kirstie! Thanks so much for sharing! Strawberry jam is my fav. Don't you love how our mothers have all these old delicious recipes! They made nearly everything from scratch.

Your photos are beautiful and make my mouth water. Suddenly, I have the desire to bake biscuits.I used to make jam with my grandmother, but I'm ashamed to admit I haven't made it as an adult. Perhaps I should invite my mom over for lesson. Wonderful post, thank you.Have a beautiful day!
