We are starting our summer canning with strawberry jam.
Normally I use low/no sugar pectin and only add a cup or two of sugar in my recipe. However I’m out of that so I’m using up some regular pectin. This uses more sugar then I like, but considering how small of a serving you use it’s not to bad.
- 2 quarts strawberries
- 2 TBS lemon juice
- 7 cups sugar
- 1 packet powdered pectin
- Wash and cut tops off berries.
- Mash berries and add lemon juice and pectin.
- Bring to a boil and add sugar.
- Boil for 1 minute.
- Remove from heat, stir and skim for 5 min.
- Ladle into jars and can for 10 min.
