Strawberry Jam

YAY for spring!! i have been looking around at blogs and seeing Jams, so I decided to try it for the first time with Yummy Strawberries (especially since they are so cheap right now!) Got the recipe from the Sure-Jell Pectin Box

- 1 box Pectin
- 4 pints Strawberries
- 3 cups sugar
- Multiple Tupperware containers ( I used five 2 cup containers)

Prep the Strawberries- cutting of the stems and slicing into smaller chunks (just in 1/2 unless really big). Put strawberries in a big bowl and mash with a potato masher (i did this 1 box of strawberries at a time). Measure out 4 cups of mashed strawberries.

In a large pot, add exactly 3 cups and 1 box of pectin. Mix well and add 1 cup of water. Bring mixture to a boil (STIRRING CONSTANTLY). Boil and stir for 1 minute and remove from heat.

Immediately stir in the strawberries and pour into prepared containers (do not fill all the way in case in expands, leave about 1/2 inch). Let stand at room temperature for 24 hours to set and then refrigerate for 3 weeks for freeze for up to 1 year!
