Make It

Tap or click steps to mark as complete

  • 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 jars well before filling.
  • Stem and crush strawberries thoroughly, one layer at a time. Measure exactly 10 cups prepared fruit into 6- or 8-qt. saucepot.
  • Stir pectin into 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 1 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 two-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 a towel to cool completely. After jars cool, check seals by pressing middles of lids with finger. (If lids spring back, lids are not sealed and refrigeration is necessary.)

How to Measure Precisely

To get exact level cup measures of sugar, spoon sugar into dry metal or plastic measuring cups, then level by scraping excess sugar from top of cup with a straight-edged knife.

Jam or Jelly Didn't Set?

Every once in a while, you may find that your jam does not set the way you expected. If your efforts resulted in a runny batch, try our Remake Directions to improve your finished jam. If your jam still doesn't set, you can always use it as a glaze or syrup.

Ratings & Reviews

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I have been making strawberry jam with Sure-Jell for years - my family's favorite kind. I have been making strawberry jam with Sure-Jell for years - my family's favorite kind. But it used to take forever because, in using the regular package recipe, it always states not to double. This double-batch recipe is excellent! I've made it several times in the last few years - if I make a few other varieties, I can just get away with two double batches a year! But this makes up easy and is delicious! Now my daughter, who now has a family of her own, keeps "borrowing a jar" to take home - guess I'll have to teach her how to make her own!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I made two batches of this strawberry recipe and both of them turned out excellent. I made two batches of this strawberry recipe and both of them turned out excellent. I used the inverson method and was very pleased with the results. I found it to be very easy to fellow the receipt but learned that you can't get to ancious and must wait for the batch to reach a full rolling boil which took longer than I expected. But the final results was worth the extra time it took to reach a full rolling boil both befor adding the sugar and again befor timing it for one minute. Thanks Kraft I will use this recipe again and again!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from ABSOLUTELY perfect recipe! ABSOLUTELY perfect recipe! I made this with my two step-children ages 8 & 10 and it came out perfect! We picked our strawberries on Sunday and made jam on Monday. DO NOT OMIT the butter! It reduces the foaming significantly! Thanks to this recipe, I will never buy strawberry jam at the store again! LOTS of extras to last the year and even give as an Easter welcoming gift to our annual Easter Egg Hunt on the homestead!
