12 hrs 15 mins
I remember grandma making jelly and preserves, hers were the very best, she never used pectin and the flavor was wonderful. I haven't tried this yet myself, but I plan to soon. I hope to make some with Splenda. I will post my notes when done.
My Private Note
- 1Cap and rinse berries, place in a large colander.
- 2Pour boiling water over berries and let drain 1 minute.
- 3Combine berries and 1 cup sugar in a dutch oven. Bring to a boil; boil 7 minutes, stirring frequently. Stir in remaining 1 1/2 cups sugar; boil an additional 7 minutes, stirring frequently.
- 4Pour strawberry mixture into a shallow 13x9-inch pan; skim off foam with a metal spoon.
- 5Let stand, uncovered, in a cool place 12 hours; shake pan occasionally so that berries will absorb syrup and remain plump and whole.
- 6Skim off foam with a metal spoon, pour preserves into sterilized jelly glasses, leaving 1/2 inch headspace.
- 7Cover with a 1/8 inch layer of paraffin. cover with lids.
