|6||Half-pint (250 mL) jars|
|2 cups||Prepared strawberries, about 1 qt|
|2 cups||Prepared rhubarb, about 1 lb|
|¼ cup||Lemon juice|
|5½ cup||Granulated sugar|
|1||Box Fruit Pectin|
Fill boiling water canner with water. Place 6 clean half-pint (250 mL) mason jars in canner. Cover, bring water to a boil; boil at least 10 minutes to sterilize jars at altitudes up to 1,000 ft. Wash, hull and crush ripe berries, one layer at a time; measure strawberries. Wash and finely chop rhubarb; measure rhubarb. Place BERNARDIN Snap Lids in boiling water; boil 5 minutes to soften sealing compound. Place fruit in a large, deep stainless steel or enamel saucepan. Add lemon juice. Measure sugar; set aside. Stir BERNARDIN Fruit Pectin into prepared fruit. Bring fruit/pectin mixture to a full boil over high heat; stirring constantly. Add sugar; return to full, rolling boil. Boil hard 1 minute, stirring constantly.
Remove cooked mixture from heat. Skim off foam with metal spoon. Ladle into a hot sterilized jar to within ¼ inch of top rim (head space). Remove air bubbles by sliding rubber spatula between glass and food; readjust head space to ¼ inch. Wipe jar rim to remove any stickiness. Center BERNARDIN Snap Lid on jar; apply screw band just until fingertip tight. Place jar in canner. Repeat for remaining jars. Cover canner; return water to boil.
Process 5 minutes at altitudes up to 1,000 feet (305 m). Remove jars. Cool, undisturbed, for 24 hours. Check jar seals. (Sealed lids curve downward.) Remove screw bands, store separately.
