Strawberry Orange Spread
I wrap up this refreshing spread with jar toppers made from Christmasy fabric. It looks so festive tucked in a basket alongside homemade cookies.
Total TimePrep: 5 min. Cook: 10 min. + standing
Makesabout 4-1/2 cups
- 2 packages (10 ounces each) frozen sweetened sliced strawberries, thawed
- 1/2 cup orange juice
- 1 tablespoon grated orange zest

- 3-1/2 cups sugar
- In a kettle, combine the strawberries, orange juice and zest. Stir in pectin. Bring to a rolling boil over high heat, stirring constantly. Add sugar; return to a rolling boil. Boil and stir for 1 minute. Remove from the heat; skim off foam. Pour into jars or freezer containers; cool to room temperature, about 1 hour.
