Ingredients:
Amount Measure Ingredient -- Preparation Method


Cooking Directions:
-------- ------------ --------------------------------
6 cups crushed strawberries
(abt 3 one-quart boxes berries)
1 package powdered pectin
8 1/2 cups sugar

To prepare fruit. Sort and wash fully ripe berries; remove any stems or
caps. Crush berries. If they are very seedy, put part or all of them
through a sieve or food mill.

To make jam. Measure crushed berries into a kettle. Add pectin and stir
well. Place on high heat and, stirring constantly, bring quickly to a
full boil with bubbles over the entire surface.

Add sugar, continue stirring, and heat again to a full bubbling boil.
Boil hard for 1 minute, stirring constantly. Remove from heat; skim.

Pour immediately into hot, sterile canning jars to 1/4-inch from top.
Seal and process 5 minutes in boiling water bath.

This recipe yields 11 or 12 half-pint jars.
