JD located strawberries for $1 a pound last Sunday. He did what I've trained him to do and called me to discuss the potential of the good buy. We decided on 30 pounds to make jam. I really didn't know if I would financially come out ahead by canning it or not, but quickly figured it out after we were done. I made two double batches two days in a row - each double batch yields 10 pint jars, so we finished with 40 jars. With the cost of strawberries, sugar and pectin, I spent $51 on 40 jars! So, that's about half the price of what I pay for Smuckers at the store.
