1 quart fresh strawberries
1 pound rhubarb
1/4 cup water
6 1/2 cups sugar
3 ounces liquid pectin

Remove caps from strawberries. Crush berries, one layer at a time. Trim
(do not peel) rhubarb. Thinly slice or chop stalks. Add water. Cover
and simmer 2 minutes or until soft. Add to the prepared strawberries.

Measure 3 1/2 cups of prepared fruit. If it measures slightly less, add
water. Place measured fruit in a 6- or 8-quart saucepan. Measure sugar
exactly and set aside. Open liquid pectin and set the pouch upright in a
cup. Stir sugar into prepared fruit. The saucepan must be no more than
one-third full to allow for a full rolling boil. Bring to a full rolling

metal spoon.

Immediately ladle into hot jars, leaving 1/4-inch space at top. With a
damp cloth, wipe jar rims and threads clean. Cover jars with hot canning
lids. Screw bands on firmly. Place jars in a boiling water bath,
carefully setting jars on rack in canner of boiling water. Cover canner
and return water to a boil; boil 5 minutes.

Remove jars from canner and let cool. Check seals and store in a cool,
dry place.
