7 half-pints


  • 3 cup crushed strawberries (about 6 cups whole berries)

  • cup lime juice

  • ½ cup tequila

  • ¼ cup Triple Sec or other orange liqueur

  • 6 cup sugar

  • ½ of a 6-ounce package (1 foil pouch) liquid fruit pectin

  • 1 teaspoon finely shredded lime peel


  1. In an 8- to 10-quart heavy pot combine strawberries, lime juice, tequila, and Triple Sec. Stir in sugar. Bring mixture to a full rolling boil, stirring constantly. Quickly stir in pectin and lime peel. Return to a full rolling boil, stirring constantly. Boil hard for 1 minute, stirring constantly. Remove from heat and quickly skim off foam with a metal spoon.

  2. Ladle hot jam into hot sterilized half-pint canning jars, leaving a 1/4-inch headspace. Wipe jar rims; adjust lids and screw bands.

  3. Process filled jars in a boiling-water canner for 5 minutes (start timing when water returns to boiling). Remove jars from canner; cool on wire racks. (It is normal for fruit to float to the top as jam cools.) Makes 7 half-pints.
