Strawberry Jam

Servings 5 Cups

Ingredients
  

  • 2 pounds fresh strawberries, washed and hulled
  • 3 cups white sugar
  • ¼ cup lemon juice
  • 2 tablespoons powdered fruit pectin

Instructions
 

  • Dice strawberries and add to a heavy bottomed saucepan. Add in the sugar, lemon juice and pectin. Stir over low heat until the sugar is dissolved. Increase heat to medium-high, stirring often until strawberries start to juice and simmer along the edge of the pot.

  • Once cooled to room temperature store the jam jars in the refrigerator. Enjoy!
