1996 2nd Place Winner

Christmas JamStrawberries belong to the Rosaceae (rose) family and were first thought to be cultivated in the United States about 1835. Most strawberries are propagated naturally by means of runners that form about two months after the planting season. The large American cranberry, Vaccinium macrocarpon, is produced in the northeastern United States in sand-covered bogs that can be flooded or drained at will. Flooding protects the vines from frosts and freezing weather and destroys insect pests. Mixing sweet red strawberries with tart cranberries results in a delicious jam that is a refreshing uplift to any meal or snack.
