Story Behind this Recipe

My friend told me that strawberry jam could easily be made in the microwave, so I tried making my own. It really was easy and delicious so I've made it repeatedly. It also comes out delicious when made with homegrown juneberries, raspberries, blueberries, etc., or even smaller amounts.
