Izzys Strawberry Jam Recipe:)

Clean and quarter strawberries
1 recipe makes 8 cups

2 qts of fruit {8 cups of the cut up berries}
7 cups sugar
1/4 c lemon juice
1 pkg pectin

I place my berries in very large canning pot. Put in lemon juice and get them warm then I smash them with a potato masher to the consistency we like -- we like pieces of strawberries in our jam:). then I slowly add the pectin and stir between each bit so that doesnt lump. then I add the sugar slowly and stirring in between as well. I cook on larges burner at 5 setting on my stoves dile:) Stirring off and on and waiting for a rolling boil that wont stir down. then start your timer for 2 min. when goes off take pot off burner and skim off the pink foam. Put into warm jars. SEAL them and then invert(turn over) and let stand 5 min each. Then turn back over and they will pop pop pop:)))) I keep my jars in oven to keep warm and I keep lids in hot water on stove:)

I usually make 4 batches at a time. I dont recommend more than that cause that takes my large hot water bath pot and it boils to the rim:)) So make sure pot is large and plenty of room to boil in:)

Here is a recipe that I tried this week. It is really good.

Slow Cooker Pork Tenderloin
2 pound Pork Tenderloin
1/4 cup low sodium soy sauce
1 TBS Yellow Mustard
2-3 TBS maple syrup
2 TBS olive oil
2 TBS Diced dried onions
1 1/2 TSP Garlic Salt or Powder
Mix ingredients above. Pour over Tenderloin in the crock pot and cook on low for 6 hours.

Changes that I made: I had boneless pork for pulled pork instead of a tenderloin but it still turned out yummy!
Also, I used 1/4 of a large onion, chopped fine and 1 glove of garlic chopped and pressed through my garlic press. I sauteed these in 1T olive oil then transferred to crock pot and browned by pieces of meat in the same skillet until they were all nice and brown.
Then when mixing the other ingredients in a small bowl, I thought it looked like I should add two more Tlbs of water to the mix.

I also cooked on low for eight hours and really checked it often at the last two hours. When the meat was so tender and falling apart, I just turned it to "warm" for the remainder of the time.

We ate the left overs as pulled pork sandwiches. It was so tasty.

Makes 24 big bars or more smaller ones.

1 cup flour
¾ cup packed brown sugar
½ cup butter softened
1 tsp grated orange peel
½ tsp baking soda
½ tsp cinnamon
¼ tsp salt
1 egg
1 tsp vanilla (optional)

¼ cup flour
2-1/2 cups candied cherries (red and green) I also threw in 8 oz of candied pineapple *
8 oz coarsely chopped dates (or raisins –white or dark if you don’t like dates)
1 cup coarsely chopped pecans *
* It is nice to have extra—at least a cup to put on top before baking.

1/3 cup sugar
2 Tbs orange juice

350 degrees oven. Grease and flour 9x13 pan (I used glass).

1. In large bows mix first ingredients above ***. It will take some mixing to get them all combined.

2. In medium bowl, mix ¼ cup flour with fruits and nuts so they don’t stick together.

3. Stir fruit and nuts into first mixture. Spread into pan. If you have extra fruit and nuts, arrange them across the top and press them in to the bar mixture.

4. Bake 35 minutes until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Cool completely—about 1 hour.

5. In small saucepan heat glaze ingredients over medium heat. Cook, stirring occasionally, until mixture thickens. Drizzle or brush cooled bars with glaze.

6. Cut into bars in rows 3x8 or smaller (I make mine about 1”x2”.
