Let's Make It
Boil jars on rack in large pot filled with water 10 minutes. Place flat lids in saucepan with water. Bring to boil. Remove from heat. Let jars and lids stand in hot water until ready to fill. Drain well before filling.
Stem and crush strawberries thoroughly, one layer at a time. Measure exactly 3-1/4 cups prepared fruit into 6- or 8-quart saucepot. Mash bananas thoroughly. Measure exactly 1-1/2 cups into strawberries in saucepot. Stir in lemon juice.
Stir pectin into fruit in saucepot. Add butter to reduce foaming, if desired. Bring mixture to full rolling boil (a boil that doesn't stop bubbling when stirred) on high heat, stirring constantly.
Stir in all sugar quickly. Return to full rolling boil and boil exactly 1 minute, stirring constantly. Remove from heat. Skim off any foam with metal spoon.
Ladle quickly into prepared jars, filling to within 1/8 inch of tops. Wipe jar rims and threads. Cover with two-piece lids. Screw bands tightly. Invert jars 5 minutes, then turn upright. Or follow water bath recommended by USDA. After jars are cool, check seals.
