Strawberry Jam Recipe (TNT)
« on: June 25, 2014, 06:07:32 PM »
Someone asked a few days ago for my recipe for strawberry jam.  I wasn't sure if this was the proper heading, so if not please feel free to move.

Strawberry Jam

2qts strawberries
1pkg powdered pectin
1/4 cup lemon juice
6 cups sugar

Wash strawberries, drain, remove stems.  Crush strawberries one layer at a time.  Combine strawberries, pectin, and lemon juice in large sauce pot.  Bring to a boil, stirring occasionally.  Add sugar, stirring until dissolved.  Return to rolling boil.  Boil hard 1 minutes, stirring constantly.  Remove from heat and skim foam if necessary.  Ladle hot jam into hot jars, leaving 1/4 inch head space.   Adjust two piece lids and caps.  Process 15 minutes in boiling water bath canner.  Makes not quite 4 pints.  **Edited to add**  I have two kettles going at the same time so I end up with 7 pints to fill the water bath canner.
