Strawberry Ginger Jam

I am not quite sure why but strawberries have been super cheap as of late. I of course find it necessary to buy a mass amount when I see cheap prices. Recently a giant thing of strawberries was $2.00 which naturally meant I must purchase them.

I love making jam which made for an easy decision. I made strawberry ginger jam with my purchase and the result is a tangy sweet spread.
