  • 2 tablespoons fruit pectin
  • 2 teaspoons lemon juice
  • red food coloring (optional)
  1. Remove strawberry caps, bruises and discolored parts, cut in half.
  2. In a medium bowl, mash strawberries with a pastry blender or potato masher.
  3. In a large skillet, add strawberries, sugar, pectin and lemon juice. Bring to a boil over medium heat, stirring occasionally.
  4. Boil for 5 minutes or until thickened. Add food coloring if you want a richer color of red.
  5. Let cool and pour into air tight containers.
TIP: If you don't like big chucks of berries in your jam you can use your pastry blender on the berries while they are cooking to break them down more
