Strawberry Jam in a Jiffy Recipe

Publisher Photo
Most people put jam on homemade biscuits, but not me. I love slathering a little butter and this amazing strawberry jam on a piping hot piece of cornbread just out of the oven; it's pretty incredible. —Michelle Roberts, Senior Culinary Specialist, Taste of Home Cooking School

Directions

  1. Rinse five 1-cup freezer-safe containers and lids with boiling water. Dry thoroughly. Thoroughly crush strawberries, 1 cup at a time, to measure exactly 2 cups; transfer to a large bowl. Stir in sugar; let stand 10 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  2. In a small saucepan, mix water and pectin; bring to a boil over high heat, stirring constantly. Boil 1 minute longer. Add to strawberry mixture, stirring until sugar is dissolved, about 3 minutes. (A few sugar crystals may remain.)
