I've been building up to this for a while... a jam-making day... my house smells dee-lish, the kitchen is a bit of a disaster, and the kids have been up to who knows what... LOL

Red Wine Strawberry Jam - this sounded like a good use of the leftover bit of red wine in the back of the fridge from a dinner some weeks ago.  We'll see how it turns out. - The recipe made 2x500 ml plus a bit.  I think it would nicely make five 250ml jars if you increased the fruit just a bit.

Strawberry Rhubarb Jam - But of course.
Loosely inspired by this recipe:  But I used more sugar and I used pectin instead of lemon juice.  I'd like to come back to this again and make it her way sometime, though.

Up next, after I thaw a bag of rhubarb or go pick some more from the neighbor's back yard... 

Spring Blush Jam - one of my favorites, a combo of strawberry, rhubarb and pineapple.  A microwave version of the recipe is online here, which makes it even easier to make it on a hot summer day:

In the queue...

Strawberry Jam - I want to use this recipe, but I need to track down a vanilla bean...

Spiced Strawberry Butter -Sounds fabulous, for slightly more grown-up taste buds.

Happy Jamming!  :)
