strawberry jam

i went strawberry picking and wasn't quite sure to do with all the strawberries. (to be honest, strawberries are not my favorite fruit)

my friend kate, suggested jam. 
jam? well, i have never done that before. i know smucker's does a great jam that i have been accustomed to about... my whole life. 

then she went on to tell me that you can make jam without canning. hmm??...i think i can do that. 
(canning does seem very-martha-stewart and something i would love to try one day- however, right now i thought i should try simple)

so freezer jam it is. and, thank you kate, you were right. simple. 
i smashed the strawberries, added sugar, and powdered  pectin. stir, stir, stir.

currently, caleb && i are eating jam. on just about everything :)
