STEM and crush strawberries thoroughly, 1 cup at a time.(a quick pulsing in the food processor does fine as well) Measure exactly 2 cups prepared fruit into large bowl. Stir in sugar. Let stand 10 minutes, stirring occasionally.



MIX water and pectin in small saucepan. Bring to boil on high heat, stirring constantly. Continue boiling and stirring 1 minute. Add to fruit mixture; stir 3 minutes or until sugar is dissolved and no longer grainy. (A few sugar crystals may remain.)



FILL all containers immediately to within 1/2 inch of tops. Wipe off top edges of containers; immediately cover with lids. Let stand at room temperature 24 hours. Jam is now ready to use. Store in refrigerator up to 3 weeks or freeze extra containers up to 1 year. Thaw in refrigerator before using.

Notes

Growing up, this was a favorite! Grandmother made it every year. When I got married and started having kids, I called my grandmother for the recipe. For some reason I thought it was a secret family recipe. Maybe it was because she was the only one who made it. Well, she told me how to make it, step by step. So I went to the store and bought everything....including Sure Jell. When I opened the package and looked at the pamphlet that''s inclosed, I discovered that this wonderful Strawberry Jam was one of Sure Jell's recipes!!!
