Strawberry Jam in a Jiffy
Total TimePrep: 20 min. + standing Cook: 10 min. + standing
- 4 cups fresh strawberries, hulled
- 4 cups sugar
- 3/4 cup water
- 1 package (1-3/4 ounces) powdered fruit pectin
- Rinse five 1-cup freezer-safe containers and lids with boiling water. Dry completely. Thoroughly crush strawberries, 1 cup at a time, to measure exactly 2 cups; transfer to a large bowl. Stir in sugar; let stand 10 minutes, stirring occasionally.
- In a small saucepan, mix water and pectin; bring to a boil over high heat, stirring constantly. Boil 1 minute longer. Add to strawberry mixture, stirring until sugar is dissolved, about 3 minutes. (A few sugar crystals may remain.)
- Immediately fill all containers to within 1/2 in. of tops. Wipe off top edges of containers; immediately cover with lids. Let stand at room temperature 24 hours.
- Jam is now ready to use. Refrigerate up to 3 weeks or freeze extra containers up to 12 months. Thaw frozen jam in refrigerator before serving.

This recipe is exactly the same recipe in a box of Sure-Jell! Made it for years.

Wow, Pythonesk, submit a 1 star review just because you don't read the recipe properly. I will give 5 starts just to try to balance the scale.

Pythonesk, 4 cups of whole berries crushed down will come close to the 2 cup measurement. You might have a bit of crushed berries leftover after crushing them.

Why does this call for 4 cups of strawberries, but only 2 are mentioned in the text of the recipe????
