Outstanding recipe for strawberry/cranberry jam. I make this every year. Love the stuff. I used fresh strawberries, pureed them in the food processor, measured 4 1/2 cups of strawberry puree, 1 pound bag of frozen cranberries(thawed) and used 2 packages of powdered fruit pectin.(57g pkgs) I added the pectin after the fruit had come to a boil. I used 12 cups of sugar. Its best to use a very large pot so there is room for expansion. A full rolling boil is one that can't be stirred down. Thanks Heather for sharing this recipe.

I can't believe I forgot to review this recipe. I've made it 3 times which is a lot of jam. This recipe makes a lot of great Christmas gifts. We also like to stir it into homemade yogurt. It is a definite keeper. This is a great recipe for somebody new to canning. One of the things I like about it best is it can be made from frozen fruit making it a perfect recipe for any time of year.
