I am over at Pre-K Pages today sharing how I made a super simple Valentine Sandwich Snack using a homemade jam. I had some jam left over so I decided to make these cute jam straws!

To make the jam, clean, hull, and quarter the strawberries. I use this AMAZING strawberry huller which makes the job SO easy!All Natural Strawberry Jam

Add the strawberries to a large saucepan with some honey and lemon juice. Place over a medium-high heat (covered) for 10 minutes. Then remove the cover, reduce the heat and simmer for 35 minutes. The natural pectin in the strawberries will thicken the jam.All Natural Strawberry Jam

Leave to cool then spoon into a storage jar. It will technically keep in the fridge for a week – but I bet you get through it faster than that!

Here’s a handy recipe card:

Then to make the straws, just unroll one sheet of puff pastry (thawing first if necessary!), and cut it in half. Spread some of the jam over one half.Valentine Jam Straws - with homemade all-natural strawberry jam!

Place the other half on top, and cut into strips. I made about 18 from mine!Valentine Jam Straws - with homemade all-natural strawberry jam!

Take each strip, twist it a few times, then place on a baking pan lined with a silicone matValentine Jam Straws - with homemade all-natural strawberry jam!

Bake for 10 minutes (in an oven preheated to 380F) until crispy, golden, and brown!

If you prefer a sweeter snack then you may like to sprinkle over a little sugar before baking, but our family prefers them without!
