Flavorful Strawberry-Rhubarb Jam

 Flavorful Strawberry-Rhubarb Jam
I consider this sweet flavorful jam summer in a jar! The fruity concoction is simply scrumptious spread on toast, English muffins and more. —Peggy Fleming, East Troy, Wisconsin
48 ServingsPrep: 10 min. Process: 5 min.

Ingredients

  • 4 cups fresh strawberries, crushed
  • 2 cups chopped fresh rhubarb
  • 1/4 cup bottled lemon juice
  • 1 package (1-3/4 ounces) powdered fruit pectin
  • 5-1/2 cups sugar

Directions

  • In a Dutch oven, combine the strawberries, rhubarb and lemon juice;
  • stir in pectin. Bring to a full rolling boil, stirring constantly.
  • Stir in sugar; return to a full rolling boil. Boil for 1 minute,
  • stirring constantly.
  • Remove from the heat; skim off foam. Carefully ladle hot mixture into
  • hot sterilized pint jars, leaving 1/4-in. headspace. Wipe rims and
  • adjust lids. Process for 5 minutes in a boiling-water canner.
  • Yield: about 6 pints.
Editor's Note: When I start a canning recipe the very first thing I do is fill the canner with water and start heating the water. It takes quite a while for that large amount of water to come to a boil.
