    Jellyqueen's Note:

    I can't really take credit for this recipe. It comes from the instruction sheet that is inside the Sure-Jell box, but it is a tried and true recipe. I love making my own jams and jellies and my family loves eating them.

      This was the first jam I have ever made, and it was fantastic! As per some of the reviews, I lightened up on the sugar by about 1/4 of a cup (so it was 6 and 3/4 cups) and it came out just perfect! Sweet, delicious, jellied nicely, and it spread on bread or english muffins just perfectly! I made my first batch on the 18th, and we ate the first whole jar within a week! I used 3 1-lb containers of strawberries (crushed, they equaled just over 5 cups) and it made 9 half-pints - I thought this would be helpful to others who aren't sure how much strawberry to use. Make sure to mash them really well! I have already made a second batch. Now it's time to move on to my next jam for Christmas baskets this year :)

      Just finished making a batch with fresh strawberries picked earlier today. It tastes great! Not too sweet, just perfect. I followed the recipe exactly, but I only got 9 half pint jars when finished. It was quick and easy to make, with the aid of my Cuisinart to crush the berries. I don't know how our grandmothers made jam without the aid of a food processor or pectin. One thing I do differently when skimming off the foam, I used a small boars hair bristle paint brush. It sweeps up the foam quickly and easily. Any good basting brush will work. I am keeping this recipe in my file and will definitely make it again.
