My mom has been making this jam for as long as I can remember, and it’s so good. I first shared the recipe last year as a guest post at Made from Pinterest. But I know some of you might have missed it there, so I figured strawberry season was the perfect time to dust off the recipe again.

I also made some vintage-inspired canning jar labels for the jam jars, plus ones for other popular homemade preserves and pickles. You’ll find the free printable canning jar labels after the recipe.

This is a recipe from my mama’s kitchen. Aren’t the best recipes always the hand-me-down variety? I’m pretty sure she got it out of the Sure-Jell box years ago, but I still think it counts as a family recipe!

Homemade Strawberry Jam
 
Author:
Recipe type: Canning
Cuisine: Condiments
Ingredients
  • 2 quarts strawberries, stems removed, cut and crushed to make 5 cups
  • 1 box SURE-JELL Fruit Pectin
  • ½ teaspoon butter
  • 7 cups sugar
  • 8 1-cup canning jars with rings and lids
Instructions
  1. Wash jars and rings with hot water and soap (or in the dishwasher.) Rinse well.
  2. Place jar lids in a sauce pan and cover with boiling water.
  3. Fill a canner half full with water and simmer.
  4. Place sliced, crushed strawberries, measuring five cups, into a 6-ounce or 8-ounce stock pot.
  5. Add pectin to berries, and stir to combine. To reduce foam, add 1 teaspoon butter. Bring to a full boil over high heat, stirring constantly.
  6. Add sugar and stir.
  7. Return to a full, rolling boil and cook for 1 minute, stirring constantly.
  8. Remove from heat and skim off foam.
  9. Ladle into clean, dry jars, leaving ¼-inch of space at the top. Wipe jars and seal with lids and bands.
  10. Place jars in canning rack and lower into the water, making sure there's 1 to 2 inches of water covering the jars.
  11. Process for 10 minutes and remove jars from canner. Place them upright on a towel.
  12. Once jars are completely cooled, check the seals by pressing the center of each lid. If the lids spring back when touched, they're not properly sealed and they must be refrigerated.

Since it’s that time of year when the garden and the farmer’s market are bountiful with fresh fruit and produce, I find myself doing a fair bit of canning of pepper jelly, watermelon rind pickles, pickles and more. I made some pretty labels to go on the jars so they’ll look pretty in my pantry or when I give these as food gifts.
