Strawberry Jam

  • Serves

    makes 2 Pints

Strawberries cultivated out of season often lack juiciness and sweetness; preserve the flavor of fresh berries year-round with this preparation.


  • 5 cups fresh strawberries
  • 4 cups sugar
  • 1 (1.75 oz.) box pectin


Step 1

Wash, hull, and slightly crush strawberries. Place in a bowl, stir in sugar, and set aside for 30 minutes.

Step 2

Add pectin to ¾ cup water in a small saucepan. Boil for 1 minute over high heat, stirring constantly, then stir into strawberries until sugar dissolves.

Step 3

Pour mixture into sterilized jars with lids and fill to ½" from tops. Seal. Let stand at room temperature overnight to set. Keeps refrigerated for up to 3 weeks—or for up to 1 year in the freezer.
