  • Mix water and pectin in small saucepan. Bring to boil on high heat, stirring constantly. Continue boiling and stirring 1 min. Add to fruit mixture; stir 3 min. or until most the sugar is dissolved. (A few sugar crystals may remain.)
  • Fill containers immediately to within 1/2 inch of tops. Wipe off top edges of containers; immediately cover with lids. Let stand at room temperature 24 hours. Jam is now ready to use. Store in refrigerator up to 3 weeks or in freezer up to 1 year. (If frozen, thaw in refrigerator before using.)

    this is such a good recipe..good fruit flavor and color. If your fruit is very sweet, then do not use as much sugar and if they are tart, use the regular amount. Have done other flavors also. Really enjoy this recipe.

    I've made this recipe for several years, as my mother did, and the family loves it. Sometimes it has not set in 24 hours but it will if you leave it standing longer. The grandkids refuse to eat some items if they are out of "Grandma's World Famous Strawberry Jam."

    I obviously bought Sure Jell Pectin that the recipe in the box was wrong. Please everyone check out the Sure Jell page to read about it. I bought 4 boxes of it and a very expensive flat of strawberries and then counting the sugar and did NOT turn out. NOT happy at all
