Why I Love This Recipe
Ingredients You'll Need
2 cups crushed strawberries (buy about 1 qt. fully ripe strawberries)
4 cups sugar, measured into separate bowl
3/4 cup water
1 box SURE-JELL Fruit Pectin
Rinse clean 5 (1-cup) plastic containers and lids with boiling water; dry thoroughly
Stem and crush strawberries thoroughly, one cup at a time

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 and immediately cover with lids
Let stand at room temperature 24 hours.
