Recipe by Kristal Stygler

I have made this for several years and it is the best Strawberry Marmalade I've ever made. The flavor is wonderful and the presentation in the jar is beautiful.

This is fantastic. Love the zing of lemon, great substitution to normal strawberry jam! I will be making this again, next crop of strawberries! I used liquid pectin because it was what I had and I didn't want to go to the store, so mine's a bit on the runny side, but it still looks and tastes great! Thank you for sharing!
