Ingredients

Instructions

  • Wash the strawberries. 
  • Pat the berries dry with a towel.
  • Stem the berries.
  • Slice the berries in half, lengthwise.
  • Once your bowl is full, crush the berries with a potato masher; or you can puree them with a blender.
  • Prep your jars, as well as the lids and bands. Make sure everything is clean and dry.
  • Stir together the sugar and pectin in a large mixing bowl.
  • Add the crushed berries to your sugar/pectin mixture; stir together for a good 3 to 4 minutes, just to make sure everything's dissolved and mixed up well.
  • Using a jar funnel and either a ladle or small liquid measuring cup, pour the jam into each prepared jar. Be sure to leave about a 1/2-inch gap at the top of each jar to allow expansion in the freezer.
  • Let the jars stand for about 30 minutes, then either refrigerate or freeze. Ball says the jam keeps up to 3 weeks in the refrigerator and up to 1 year in the freezer.
