I made strawberry jam for the first time using strawberries, sugar and lemon juice. I followed the receipe for cooking but unfortunatly did not read the part about sterilizing jars and using jars. I just poured into glass bowls i had with no lid.
Did I mess up? Can i use what I made? Can I fix it if I did mess up?
the kids picked the berries and I would hate to have to throw out the jam. I only made a small batch enough for about a weeks worth.
