- Baby Bear's Strawberry Jam Sammies
These sweet sandwiches are simple to make. The only thing you need for your homemade jam is fruit, sugar, and love.
1 1/2 cups of jamIngredients:
- 1 bag (16 ounces) frozen whole strawberries or mixed berries
- ⅓ to ½ cup sugar (depending on the sweetness of the fruit)
- Juice of ½ a lemon
- Whole grain sandwich bread
- Step 1: Things You'll Need
Gather these ingredients to make Baby Bear's Strawberry Jam Sammies.
- Step 2: Strawberry Goodness
Stir together the strawberries and sugar in a 2 quart microwavable measuring cup or casserole dish. Microwave uncovered on HIGH for 2 minutes.
- Step 3: Stir and Cook
Stir and cut the large berries into small pieces. Add the lemon juice and stir. Return to the microwave and cook 5 minutes.
- Step 4: Stir Again
Stir and return mixture to the microwave and cook 5 more minutes. Watch the mixture and stir again once or twice, if needed, to prevent the jam from boiling over.
- Step 5: Test It Out
To test the thickness of the jam, put a spoonful on a small saucer and place it in the freezer for a minute. This is about how thick your jam will be when cooled. If you want thicker jam, microwave 2 to 4 more minutes.
- Step 6: Cool It
Allow the jam to cool. Pour it into storage containers. Jam will keep in the refrigerator for up to 2 weeks or in the freezer up to 4 months.
- Step 7: Make Up Shapes
When jam is completely cooled, make the sammies. Put slices of bread on a cutting board. Cut shapes from the bread using assorted cookie cutters.
- Step 8: Spread It On
Spread the jam on the bread shapes.
- Step 9: Your Little Bear Will Think It's Berry, Berry Good!
Enjoy this yummy snack anytime! Try making the jam from blueberries or raspberries, too.
