Earth Jam

OK, it's really Strawberry Jam. But I made this on Earth Day - April 22nd so this time I'm calling it my Earth Jam.
I've been making strawberry jam for years. I don't remember a time when I didn't make jam. I do make 7 or 8 small jars at a time, and when we run out, I make it again. I use frozen Jemseg strawberries that we would have picked, hulled, and froze last summer. I use the recipe in the Certo liquid box. I've never had a failure.

As I was making this, and knowing it was Earth day, I reflected on how many glass jars I've saved over the years by making my own jam. I guess that goes for the pickles that I make too.

This jam looks delicious but why such small bottles.
