My mother's favorite gifts were always the homemade ones, and they still are.

So this year I am making her Strawberry Jam. And this is not just any ordinary strawberry jam, it is Strawberry Jam with Coconut Rum and Lime Zest.

I love mixing flavors and I have been working on this recipe for several is perfection!!!

Some people love to make jam and some people are intimidated by the prospect. It is easy!!!

You need 2 pots, 8 jars, strawberries, pectin and sugar. (and my extra ingredients)
It will take you less than an hour to make 8 jars of jam.

And what a fun gift!!! Tear off a square piece of fabric, stamp the top with a strawberry stamp and tie it around the jar with twine. Give it to your mom, sisters, neighbors, friends as a show of appreciation. Nothing says love like something homemade.
