Because this jam is not cooked, it must be stored in the freezer and can be used for up to one year. Just take a jar out of the freezer, thaw in refrigerator and use. If using some of the jam right away, store in the refrigerator for up to 3 weeks, after that it must be thrown out. Once you have opened a jar, refrigerate and use within 3 weeks.

5 cups fresh strawberries, stems removed
4 cups granulated sugar
3/4 cup water
1 package (1 3/4 ounces) powdered fruit pectin

Crush strawberries completely. Measure 2 cups strawberries with juices into bowl. Thoroughly mix in sugar; set aside 10 minutes. Combine water and pectin in saucepan. Bring to boil and boil one minute, stirring constantly. Stir pectin mixture into strawberries; continue stirring 3 minutes. Ladle quickly into sterilized freezer jars or containers, allowing 1/2 inch head space. Cover lids. Let stand at room temperature 24 hours. Store in freezer for up to one year, or if jam is to be used with 2 or 3 weeks, store in refrigerator.

Makes: 2 1/2 cups

Finally found the recipe I used while my kids were growing up. I kept finding others that called for something else added or different procedures. This is the easiest, most simple and VERY GOOD!

Haven't tried this recipe yet but I do have a suggestion.. I've been making strawberry preserves for many years, if you leave a few leafs on and some of the white parts you don't need to add pectin.. it contains its own pectin.. Great site.
