1/1 Photo of Easy Strawberry Jam
Secret Agent's Note:
This is a very fresh-tasting jam and it retains it's jewel-like color. It's fast to make so when strawberries go on sale or when you have a glut in the garden, make several batches to get you through the winter!
My Private Note
Units: US | Metric
- 1Put your very clean half-pint jars and bands into a huge pot of boiling water.
- 2Put lids in hot but not boiling water.
- 3Start your water-bath canner and let it come to a rolling boil before you start the recipe.
- 4Crush the strawberries a layer at a time in a big pot (the recipe boils up) but don't pulverize them as they cook down easily. When the first layer is crushed add another layer and repeat until all of the berries are crushed.
- 5Add Fresh Fruit and Sure Jell and stir well. Add lemon juice and stir well.
- 6Bring to a boil over medium to medium high heat and add the sugar stirring constantly until it comes to a full boil. Boil for one minute, stirring all the while.
- 7Remove from the stove and set on a few thicknesses of bath towels.
- 8Drop in a teaspoon of butter to help cut the foam and skim if you need to.
- 9Ladle into hot jars and process in a fiercely boiling hot water bath for ten minutes. Turn off the heat and wait about 2 minutes and remove the jars to a rack set over a bath towel or on a double thickness of bath towels.
- 10Wait 24 hours, check seals, remove bands and wipe the jars and label them.
