Easy Jammin' Local Organic Strawberry Jam


Makes 2.5 quarts jam


½ flat local organic strawberries, washed hulled and halved

6 cups sugar (trust me)

1/3 cup lemon juice

Candy thermometer & jars totally 2.5 qt. capacity (ten 1/2 pints)


Mash the berries in a heavy bottom pot with a potato masher. Add the sugar & lemon juice, bring to a boil stirring well as you go. After you’ve got a good rolling boil going begin checking the temperature, once you hit 220 degrees turn off the heat. (You can’t cheat & use a meat thermometer because they don’t go to 220 and that’s essential to get the jam to set.)


Boil a pot of water and sterilize the jars and lids. I like to reuse jars & this works fine. Use tongs to take them out & invert them on a clean dishtowel.

Put back into the boiling water for 10 minutes.


Happy creating,
