assembly line for the jam
the food processor has revolutionized canning. watch for one at a yard sale or on craig's list. really it is a must. you can also use a blender if you do not "overblend".
those strawberries were just gorgeous! they are on sale for a really good deal in many stores right now. it would be a good time to make enough to last a couple of months. i made about 16 pint size jars with 10 lbs of strawberries.
