Microwave Strawberry Jam

. . . is not as grand an idea as one might think.

Paper towels.  My new best friend.
So what's going on in your kitchen?

Oh no! Looks like the time I put the stick of butter in for too long... Yikes! Yes, paper towels are the best for that kind of stuff.

My microwave is up high, above my head so I have to stand on something to see if stuff boils over. Wow, that makes a mess, so are you saying it was a good project and you will do it again soon?
Even when I make jam the regular way on the stove, I still have floors to mop and cupboards to clean. I guess I am just messy,

Oy. Maybe this is why I'm afraid of jam...

Joanne, nothing to be afraid of in jam-making in general. Freezer jams are foolproof and you need absolutely no special equipment. But this microwave jam attempt? You're right. Oy. Never again.

I'd need to have a comforting glass of wine by my side to clean up that mess!!! I agree, strawberry freezer jam is so much easier, even for me!!!

Kudos to you for trying:)

Thanks for sharing, Lynn and thank you so much for your comforting words. They truly helped:)

I've only heard about microwave jam recipes, but I've never seen one. I can't wait to give this a try!

Oh dear! That's too funny. Looks like something that would definitely happen to me, especially when trying to make desserts. Thanks so much for sharing on my blog, and I will have to borrow that ribs recipe!
