Snackshot Of The Day: Vanilla Strawberry Jam

The Daily Meal's editors, contributors, and readers dig into some pretty great restaurants, festivals, and meals. There's not always enough time to give a full review of a restaurant or describe in depth why a place, its food, and the people who prepare it are noteworthy, so Snackshot of the Day does what photographs do best, rely on the image to do most of the talking.

Today's Snackshot is of homemade strawberry vanilla jam. Fresh berries are going to start popping up at local farmers' markets soon, and with fruit, comes jam. Be careful when making jam, as all your jars and equipment must be completely sanitized. The results are endless, though. Use multiple types of fruit, and try adding flavors like vanilla, clove, or a curry powder for a little kick.
