Strawberry season is coming very soon! Yay!! I love strawberries. I used to spend so much time at the pick-your-own farms. Between my daughter and myself, I’m sure that we ate far more strawberries right there in the fields than we brought home.
I used to also spend hours cooking my strawberry jam. June/July when strawberries are in season, is not the best time to be standing over a hot stove cooking jam.
This recipe is just way too easy! It can be done with fresh or frozen strawberries. It can also be done in larger batches and frozen. Either way, there is no more standing over the stove on a hot summer day!! It leaves far more time for enjoying the beautiful weather!

1-2 Tbsp. maple syrup or raw honey if not vegan
