Making Strawberry Jam?

I love fresh Strawberry Jam, but I usually don't justify making it unless there is a Fabuless deal in order to do it.

Well, Fred Meyer has their 4lb strawberries for $3.88, in the O/5 store there is a display of Certo pectin by the aisles close to the coolers in the back that has peelies for free sugar (up to $2 in value) when you buy 2 Certo pectins that happen to be on sale for 2 for $4.

When you buy 4 of the pectins a Catalina prints for $3 off your next purchase! So:

4 lbs Strawberries $3.88
4 Pectin boxes $8.00
2 5lb sugar free

plus a $3 Catalina (for more strawberries?)

Wow- that's a GREAT deal on strawberries! I just featured my own strawberry jam making on my blog here: http://www.utahdealdiva.com/2009/05/homemade-strawberry-jam.html

It's easy! Plus, with the great deals you can get- why not?!

Kearna! Just the kick in the pants I've needed! I'm off to Freds RIGHT NOW!

Bummer, the display coupons were gone, so I grabbed 2 of my usual low sugar pectin, and then 2 other bags of the ball "no cook" pectin. A $1 CAT printed out though! There were only about 8 4-lb containers left as I was leaving.

Thanks for the update. I was just getting ready to go out.

Kearna said...

HMMMM...I got 4 of the sure jell low sugar pectins (pink box) I wonder if that has anything to do with the catalina, because I got a $3 one.

I have 2 extra Qs that I got for my Mom and she found others. Come and get them...
