this is too easy NOT to make!
strawberries are here, in season. and word on the street is that the season is shorter than usual due to an early warm front and late frost.
8 cups sugar
4 cups crushed strawberries
2 boxes of pectin (i use sure-jell. yellow box)
1 1/2 cups water
cut your strawberries and put them in a food processor or mash them by hand.
you want to end up with 4 cups of crushed strawberries.
stir in sugar
on the stove add the two envelopes (1 envelope comes in each box) of pectin to the 1 1/2 cups of water.
stir it in until and boil for one minute….it should be dissolved.
turn off heat. add your strawberries.
now, this is where i like to add about 5 coarsely chopped strawberries because i like my jam with some chunks.
