Luscious Homemade Strawberry Jam

Healthy Fact of the Day

Strawberries are an excellent source of vitamin C and contain powerful antioxidants called polyphenols. While jam does contain a high amount of sugar, enjoying it in moderation can be part of a balanced diet.

Ingredients

 

  • 4 cups fresh strawberries, hulled and chopped
  • 4 cups granulated sugar
  • 1/4 cup fresh lemon juice
  • 1 (3-ounce) pouch liquid pectin

 

Instructions

  1. In a large bowl, mix the chopped strawberries with sugar. Let stand at room temperature for about 2 hours, stirring occasionally. This process helps the sugar dissolve and the strawberries release their juices.
  2. Transfer the strawberry mixture to a large, heavy-bottomed pot. Add lemon juice and bring to a rolling boil over high heat, stirring frequently.
  3. Once boiling, add the liquid pectin and return to a full rolling boil. Boil hard for 1 minute, stirring constantly.
  4. Remove from heat and skim off any foam from the surface with a metal spoon.
  5. Ladle the hot jam into clean, sterilized jars, leaving 1/4-inch headspace at the top.
  6. Wipe the rims of the jars with a clean, damp cloth to remove any spills. Place the lids on and screw on the bands until they are fingertip tight.
  7. Process the jars in a boiling water bath for 10 minutes (adjust for altitude if necessary).
  8. Remove jars from the water bath and let cool completely on a towel at room temperature for 24 hours.
  9. Check that all lids have sealed properly. Any unsealed jars should be refrigerated and used within 3 weeks.

 

Spread a spoonful of this vibrant homemade strawberry jam on your morning toast and let the sweet, tangy flavors transport you to sun-drenched strawberry fields – a delicious way to preserve summer’s bounty and brighten up even the dreariest of days!
