Organic Strawberry Jam

Ingredients:

  • 3 quarts ripe organic strawberries, washed and stemmed
  • 1 (1.75 oz) pkg. powdered pectin
  • 8 cups Florida Crystals® Organic Sugar

Directions:

  1. In large bowl, crush berries with a fork and measure approximately 5 1/2 cups into a 6-quart pot.
  2. Add pectin and stir well. Place on high heat and, stirring constantly, bring quickly to a full boil with bubbles over the entire surface.
  3. Add sugar, continue stirring and return to a full boil. Boil rapidly for 1 minute, stirring constantly.
  4. Remove from heat; skim. Stir and skim for 5 minutes to cool slightly and to prevent floating fruit.
  5. Ladle into hot, sterilized, canning jars, leaving 1/4-inch headspace. Place lids on jars and tighten screw bands.
  6. Place jars on a rack in a pot of simmering water, making sure jars are completely covered by water. Bring to a rolling boil. Boil for 15 minutes; cool.
  7. Carefully remove jars from water. Check for proper seal. (If lid pushes down, but springs up, jar is improperly sealed; reprocess immediately.)
  8. Store in a cool, dark place. Makes 5 pints.
