Ingredients

4 pints fresh strawberries, halved

1 cup water

5 cups sugar

Juice of one lemon

Directions

  1. In a 8 quart stock pot, add the fruit and water and simmer until the fruit is very soft. Add the sugar and lemon juice. Stir to dissolve and bring up to a boil. Maintain at a full rolling boil until the jell point is reached. (*Also a skin will form on the surface as it cools) Remove from the heat. Skim off any impurities and leave to cool for 10 minutes. Using a funnel, pour the fruit into hot sterilized jars. Fill the jars and wipe the rims.. Seal the jars, leaving 1-inch from the top for headroom. Label the jars and store in a cool, dark, and dry place. Spread the jam between biscuits and place on a platter.
