DIRECTIONS

  • You will need clean plastic containers and lids; rinse them thoroughly with boiling water and make sure they are completely dry.
  • Rinse strawberries gently with clean water, pat dry, then stem and crush them thoroughly, one layer at a time.
  • Measure exactly 2 cups crushed berries into a large bowl; stir in sugar.
  • Let stand for 10 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  • Mix water and pectin in small saucepan; bring to boil on high heat, stirring constantly.
  • Continue boiling and stirring 1 minute.
  • Remove from heat and add to fruit mixture; stir constantly for three minutes or until sugar is dissolved and no longer grainy; a few sugar crystals may remain and that's okay.
  • Fill prepared containers immediately to within 1/2 inch of tops.
  • Wipe off top edges and immediately cover with lids.
  • Let stand at room temperature 24 hours.
  • Your jam is now ready to use, and can be stored in the fridge for up to three weeks or frozen for up to one year.
  • Thaw frozen jam in the fridge before using.
