Simple Recipe for Strawberry Jam

Making delicious strawberry jam has never been so easy!

Strawberry jam is wonderful for breakfast with home-made biscuits or pancakes. We also love strawberry jam with toast and with dinner rolls. Strawberry jam can even be used between the layers of a white cake for a fabulous dessert.

Berry Jerry’s simple recipe for strawberry jam…

Some people think it is difficult to make strawberry jam because it is usually canned which requires a canning bath or paraffin. However, when we make strawberry jam, since we have either fresh or frozen strawberries on hand year round, we make it fresh so there is no need for all those fancy canning supplies.

To make some delicious strawberry jam to be served right away, you use 2 cups of crushed strawberries and mix them with 4 cups of sugar and set them aside.

Mix one box of Sure-Jell Fruit Pectin with 3/4 cup of water in a saucepan and bring it to a boil. Stir the mixture constantly and boil it for one minute.

Remove the saucepan from the heat and mix the water mixture with the strawberry mixture. Pour the strawberry jam into containers and let them sit at room temperature for 24 hours. Then you can eat the strawberry jam, store it in the refrigerator to be used over the next couple of days, or freeze it.

Fun Fact: It is best to make jam in small batches because large batches have to cook longer which can cause your strawberry jam to lose some of its flavor.

This is most certainly the quickest and easiest recipe you will ever find for strawberry jam. If you do want to can the strawberry jam, you can use a canning bath to seal the canning jars that you use to can the strawberry jam. You can also use food-safe paraffin in the top of your canning jars rather than sealing them in a water bath.
