I am giving this recipe a "Very Good" rating and not superb. It is delicious and with a few minor revisions it is in fact SUPERB. First 7 cups of sugar is simply too sweet. I reduced the recipe to 5 cups. I used very ripe sweet strawberries so the excessive sugar was not needed. I also added finely grated orange zest from one orange, and the juice of half a medium sized lemon. The zest adds a depth of flavor and the acidity in the lemon works as a natural flavor enhancer. The recipe yielded (6) 8 oz Kerr jars.
I started making this jam when I was in my teens (with my grandmother's help of course!) and I still make it every summer. Friends and family always request it, in fact my best friend just asked me to make her an entire batch for her birthday. It is so much better than store bought and definitley worth the time and effort to make, especially when strawberries are at their cheapest around the beginning of July.
I made this into Strawberry Basil Jam and it is exquisite!
Right after the Certo had it's one minute I just added 3T of basil which I chiffionade.
I didn't want the basil to overcook or overpower so that's why I added it just at the end.
It doesn't scream BASIL... but it adds a new and interesting flavor.
