Strawberry Jam

22 04 2010

As a result of our strawberry picking adventure two weeks ago, we made delicious strawberry jam.  The recipe is so simple. All you will want to do is find things to serve strawberry jam with, such as, biscuits, toast, ice cream, custard, tapioca (my grandmother always serves jam and tapioca), peanut butter, cheese…I could go on and on, but you will have to make it for yourself to find out how easy it can be to make jam.


2 cartons of strawberries (quart size)

4 cups sugar

1 box jell fruit pectin


Thoroughly wash and rise the strawberries.  Remove the caps.  Crush the strawberries in a large bowl and then add the sugar.   It can sit and wait, while you boil ¾ water and the pack of jell fruit pectin.  You will need to stir this constantly. 

Combine fruit and pectin/water mixture and stir thoroughly.  

Depending upon how you plan to use your jam, you can transfer into freezer containers or jars.  Either way, make sure that you let the jam stand for 24 hours prior to freezing or serving.
