The September 2010 Daring Cooks’ challenge was hosted by John of Eat4Fun. John chose to challenge The Daring Cooks to learn about food preservation, mainly in the form of canning and freezing. He challenged everyone to make a recipe and preserve it. John’s source for food preservation information was from The National Center for Home Food Preservation.
I have aspirations for learning to preserve. I love jam. My mother in law makes jam all summer long and one of these years I'm going to learn!
This challenge was very exciting. I decided to do freezer jam. Everyone says it's super simple. Nicole at Pinch My Salt's strawberry freezer jam was so easy she didn't even include a recipe. She just followed the directions on the package. I can do that!

Maybe next year is my year to learn real canning with cooking, glass jars, and special seals! For sure I'll be making more freezer jam again!!
