California Strawberry Jam

This California strawberry jam hails from the #1 producer of strawberries in the United States. If they're not the experts, who is?


5 cups fresh strawberries, stemmed
4 cups granulated sugar
3/4 cup water
1 (1 3/4 ounce) package powdered fruit pectin


Crush berries 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 berries; continue stirring 3 minutes.

Ladle quickly into sterilized freezer jars or containers, allowing 1/2 inch head space. Cover with lids. Let stand at room temperature 24 hours.

Store in freezer. If jam is to be used within 2-3 weeks, store in refrigerator.

Makes 2 1/2 cups.
