It's Strawberry Jelly Time

It is strawberry picking time and what better way to celebrate then to make fresh Strawberry Jelly right in your own home.  This recipe is straight out of the "Tasteful Treasures" Cookbook from Conewango Valley, NY.


5 cups crushed berries

7 cups sugar

1/3 cup pectin (or 1 package of Sure-Jell)



In a large 6-quart pan mix the berries and pectin and place over high heat.  Immediately measure sugar and add to the fruit as soon as it comes to a hard boil.  You can also add 1/4 tsp of butter to keep from foaming excessively. 

Stir often while bringing mixture to a full rolling boil.  (a rolling boil cannot be stirred down) 

Cook for 1 minute, remove from heat, skim foam and ladle into jars leaving 1/2" airspace. 

Adjust lids and cook in hot water bath for 10 minutes.  Turn jars upside-down for 10 - 15 minutes, then turn right side up to distribute fruit evenly.
