Yummy homemade jam

Category: Jams & Preserves

 Ingredients List

  • 5 pints of hulled strawberries
  • 6 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
  • 1 1/2 packages of fruit pectin (powdered)
  • 10 1/2 cups of sugar


Using a potato masher”¦mash all the strawberries really well, but leave some chunks. Throw them into a pot and add the lemon juice and bring them to a boil.
Add in the fruit pectin and stir to combine all the yumminess really well.
Add the sugar all at one time and stir to combine.
Bring all this great scrumptiousness to a hard boil and let it boil for 1 minute 25 seconds.
Turn it off and skim off any foam that has formed on the top.
Using the wide-mouth funnel fill each jar to within 1/4”³ from the top.
Follow canning instructions to give your lovely jars a water bath.
Remove jars from their bath and allow to sit somewhere undisturbed for 24 hours.
It is so fun to hear the jars *pop*, which means they have sealed correctly. From all over the house the day we did this everyone would be listening for *pops* and say “Oh! There goes another one!” It became very comical.
After 24 hours test each jar by pushing down on the center of the top to make sure that it sealed properly. {It should not ”˜give”™ when you push down on it.}
