Ingredients

Instructions

  • Wash and Stem Strawberries. {I use a Stem Gem to speed up the process}
  • For chunkier jam, Slice Strawberries, place in a shallow pan, and use hand masher to crush berries {consistency will depend on how chunky you like your jam}.
  • For smoother jam, place stemmed Strawberries in your Vitamix Blender or Blendtec, and puree. {I puree 2 lbs at a time, using the handle of a wooden spoon to smash down the berries from the top during the process} You'll end up with approx. 8 cups of puree.
  • In Extra Large Mixing Bowl, stir together Pectin and Sugar.
  • Add mashed berries into mixture, and stir for 3 minutes with a large wooden spoon.
  • Carefully pour jam into freezer-safe jars. {I use the 4oz. – 8oz. size.}
  • Let jam set for 30 minutes.
  • After jam has set, affix lids, then store in your freezer until you’re ready to use your tasty jam.
