4 quarts strawberries
6 medium pink grapefruit
1 1/2 cups sugar - (to 2)

Combine strawberry purée and grapefruit juice in a large saucepot. Add
sugar, stirring to dissolve. Add water. Heat to 165 degrees, stirring
occasionally. Do not boil. Remove from heat. Skim foam if necessary.

several layers of cheesecloth.

Carefully ladle hot juice into hot jars, leaving 1/4-inch headspace. Wipe
jar rim clean. Place lid on jar with sealing compound next to glass.

1,000 feet, boil 2 additional minutes for each additional 1,000 feet

Comments: Honey may be substituted for sugar, adjusting for personal
taste. Frozen grapefruit juice may be substituted for fresh juice. If
juice is too thick, it may be thinned with additional water.
