Ingredients

Instructions

Prepare Strawberries

  • Rinse strawberries. Cut the tops off and cut each berry into small pieces. Place berries in a blender and pulse a few times to break them down.

Mix Strawberries with Sugar and Pectin

  • Mix sugar and pectin together in a bowl. Pour strawberries over sugar and pectin.
  • Stir for 3-5 minutes. This may seem excessive, but is essential to make sure that the sugar is evenly distributed and reacting with the strawberry juice. You don't want gritty jam.

Notes

I used glass jars for my jam because I have an entire cupboard full of them. Plastic containers are great for freezer use as well. You do not need to use canning lids (the kind with a ring and top) since you will not be processing these in a canner. Simple screw on lids are easier to open and close anyway!
Because it is made from fresh fruit, and not cooked, the jam will not last as long in the refrigerator as cooked jam. We have a large family (7) so a 16 oz. jar will go pretty quickly. If you have a smaller family it is best to make 4 or 8 oz. jars. To thaw a frozen jar simply place the jar in the refrigerator for 24 hours.
