Homemade strawberry jam

Yield: 4 servings

Measure Ingredient
4 quarts Strawberries
2 cups Sugar

Pick strawberries over carefully and wash, removing stems, hulls, and debris. Place berries in an enamel or stainless steel pot. Crush well with a masher or spoon, and simmer over moderate heat until berries soften.

Measure strawberry pulp. For every cup of pulp, add ½ to ¾ cup of sugar, depending on desired sweetness. Return berries and sugar to a boil over moderately high heat and continue to boil until the temperature of the jam reaches 221 degrees on a candy thermometer.

Keep an eye on the boiling jam and stir frequently.

When jam is ready, carefully ladle into sterilized jars, seal, and process

according to jar manufacturer's instructions.

Yield: 6 cups finished jam
