I just made this recipe, and it is soooo good! Beautiful, jewel-toned strawberry jam with a touch of lemon--I found the recipe in the Ball powdered pectin box. My chef husband gave me a bar zester years ago, and I use it to get a fine, delicate lemon peel with no pith. If you don't have a zester, prepare the peel to your preference, but be sure to remove as much of the pith as possible. This jam set up quickly for me, and I would recommend turning the jars after they seal to distribute the fruit pieces. I can't wait to give this as gifts for the holidays!
