strawberry jam 2 - Copy

This is my grandma’s strawberry jam recipe, picked straight from her recipe box.  I can remember her always having an extra jar of this jam in the freezer.  This jam is so good and the recipe is really pretty easy.  If you’ve never made jam before, it may be a little alarming to see how much sugar a jam recipe actually needs.  It’s natuually a gluten free recipe, so it can be enjoyed by those with a gluten intolerance or celiacs.  I hope you enjoy and let me know what think!

Ingredients
  • 1 quart of Strawberries
  • ½ lemon, juiced
  • 4 cups sugar
  • ¼ tsp butter
  • 1 pinch of salt
  • Sterilized Mason Jars and Lids - Makes 6 - 8 oz Ball Mason Jars
Instructions
  1. Add all of the ingredients to medium saucepan and cook over medium-high heat.
  2. Boil for 5 minutes, while stirring occasionally.
  3. Boil an additional 1 minute, without stirring.
  4. Boil an additional 1 minute, with constant stiring.
  5. Pull from heat and put the jam in the sterilized mason jars. I purchased a canning funnel, which makes filling jars a lot easier. Also, I would recommend filling jars in the sink. The jam could stain, so be careful!
  6. Put lids and rings on jars and add to hot water bath. Leave jars in hot water bath for 10 minutes. Carefully remove jars from hot water bath, ensure rings are tight, and lids have sealed.
