Simple Strawberry Jam

Directions

  1. In a large bowl, crush berries with a potato masher. Stir in sugar. Let stand for 10 minutes; stirring occasionally.
  2. In a small saucepan, combine pectin and water. Bring to boiling; boil for 1 minute, stirring constantly. Remove from heat. Pour into berry mixture. Add lemon juice and stir about 3 minutes or until sugar is dissolved and mixture is smooth. Stir in lemon slices.
  3. Ladle jam into clean half-pint freezer containers or jars, leaving 1/2-inch headspace; seal. Let stand at room temperature about 24 hours or until set.

Gift It!

Fill a plastic container with the jam and close the lid. Cut the sleeve off an old sweater 1 inch longer than the height of the container. Slide the sleeve on the container. Tuck the cut sleeve edge under the container. Tie a ribbon around the middle of the container. Use the ribbon to attach a small jam spoon, tying the ends into a bow around it. Attach a paper snowflake to the lid.
