On the one hand, it seems quite trivial to me to write about strawberry jam today. On the other, it seems more important than ever to embrace the pure, simple, delicious pleasures of life. Besides, my sister, Cindy, told me to post this, and I generally do as she says. I’ve used less sugar in this jam by substituting a third of what the Sure-Jell Pectin recipe calls for with Monkfruit sweetener. It turned out great, no-one could tell. They didn’t even get mad at me when I revealed my trickery.
