3 Quarts of fresh strawberries, hulled
1 1-3/4 ounce package regular powdered fruit pectin
1/2 teaspoon butter
7 Cups of sugar
1. Place 1 cup of crush berries in an 8-quart heavy kettle. Continue adding berries and crushing until you have 5 cups. Stir in pectin and butter. Heat on high, stirring constantly, until mixture comes to a full rolling boil. Add sugar all at once. Return to boiling 1 minute, stirring constantly.Remove from heat, skim off foam with a metal spoon.
2. Ladle at once into hot, sterilized half-print canning jars, leaving a 1/4 inch head space. Wipe jar rims, adjust lids. Process in a boiling-water canner for 5 minutes(start timing when water returns to boil). Remove jars; cool on racks. Makes about 7 half-pints.
I will be making more of this wonderful jam in the future!
Hope everyone will have the week end of your choice.
