How To Make Strawberry Jam

This post may contain affiliate links, my full disclosure can be read here. As an Amazon Associate I earn from qualifying purchases.

We are starting our summer canning with strawberry jam.
Normally I use low/no sugar pectin and only add a cup or two of sugar in my recipe. However I’m out of that so I’m using up some regular pectin. This uses more sugar then I like, but considering how small of a serving you use it’s not to bad.

Prep Time 20 minutes
Cook Time 20 minutes
Total Time 40 minutes


  • 2 quarts strawberries
  • 2 TBS lemon juice
  • 7 cups sugar
  • 1 packet powdered pectin


  1. Wash and cut tops off berries.
  2. Mash berries and add lemon juice and pectin.
  3. Bring to a boil and add sugar.
  4. Boil for 1 minute.
  5. Remove from heat, stir and skim for 5 min.
  6. Ladle into jars and can for 10 min.
