Fall brings the approaching of the holidays and
that’s when I like to try out new recipes.Today
I bought some strawberry’s and decided to make
some strawberry jam. This quick and easy jam
is perfect to make in bulk for later gift
1 32 oz package of fresh strawberry’s(mashed)
1 1/2 box of sure jell pectin
4 1/2 cups sugar or splenda
1 large canner
12 oz mason jars(screw bands and lids)
Fill canner with water and bring to a roaring boil. Wash jars,screw bands and lids with hot soapy water and rinse. Place in canner to sterilize for 10 to 15 minutes.
Meanwhile place strawberry’s in large bowl and mash with a potato masher. Add to sauce pan and add sugar. Cook to a roaring boil and stir. Turn heat down to medium and add sugar. Stir until sugar is melted. Add pectin and keep stirring until thickened. Pour hot strawberry mixture into sterilized jars and screw on the lids. Place jars back into canner for 10 to 15 minutes to begin the sealing process. Remove and let cool overnight.
Refrigerate after opening.
