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 well before filling.
  • Stem and crush strawberries thoroughly, one layer at a time. Measure exactly 5 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 needed.) 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 middle of lids with finger. (If lids spring back, lids are not sealed and refrigeration is necessary.)

Strawberry-Lime Jam

Prepare as directed, adding 2 tsp. lime zest and 1/4 cup lime juice to prepared 5 cups strawberries in saucepot.

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.

When I worked at a jelly factory, we never did anything except **** out the bottles with air to make sure nothing was inside, fill with boiling product, ***** on the caps, box them, and place them upside down until they were completely cooled. And all that time, I never heard of anyone getting sick or dying because they weren't "processed" correctly.

I made this recipe several times...but I cut off the outer skin to remove every little seed. It turns out a fushia color with diced seedless fruit....you'll go threw more quarts of fruit by cutting the seeds off to get the correct measure of prepared fruit however. This jam sets well every single time.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I've been ****** this recipe for years. I've been ****** this recipe for years. It is just too good. I haven't bought jam in years because it's just not the same. Don't let canning scare you, with the right equipment this recipe really comes together quite quickly. Go ahead, save some summer in a jar.

I was afraid that it would not set up and be more syrup like, but it ended up just beautiful. I opened a jar and it tastes delicious. It made 8 jars just as the recipe stated. I will make it again!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This was a fantastic jam! This was a fantastic jam! One tip: use a food processor to puree the strawberries before boiling. It is like spreading pure heaven on your biscuits! We kept most of it for ourselves!
