Make It

  • Bring boiling-water canner, half full with water, to simmer. Wash jars and screw bands in hot soapy water; rinse with warm water. Pour boiling water over flat lids in saucepan off the heat. Let stand in hot water until ready to use. Drain well before filling.
  • Stem and crush strawberries thoroughly, one layer at a time. Measure exactly 5-3/4 cups prepared fruit into 6- or 8-qt. saucepot. Stir in lemon juice.
  • Stir pectin into prepared fruit in saucepot. Add butter to reduce foaming. Bring mixture to full rolling boil (a boil that doesn't stop bubbling when stirred) on high heat, stirring constantly. Stir in sugar. Return to full rolling boil and boil exactly 4 min., stirring constantly. Remove from heat. Skim off any foam with metal spoon.
  • Ladle immediately into prepared jars, filling to within 1/4 inch of tops. Wipe jar rims and threads. Cover with 2-piece lids. Screw bands tightly. Place jars on elevated rack in canner. Lower rack into canner. (Water must cover jars by 1 to 2 inches. Add boiling water, if necessary.) Cover; bring water to gentle boil. Process 10 min. Remove jars and place upright on towel to cool completely. After jars cool, check seals by pressing middle of lid with finger. (If lid springs back, lid is not sealed and refrigeration is necessary.)

Ratings & Reviews

Rated 5 out of 5 by from If you can take the time to buy farmstand or farmers market strawberries. If you can take the time to buy farmstand or farmers market strawberries. They should be wonderfully fragrant not the large type with no flavor. I have been making this recipe for more than 40 years and everyone loves it. I like it a little chunky so I use a potato masher to smash the berries. Great for hostess or thank-you gifts.
