What you will need.
1. 1/8 cup of fresh squeezed lemon juice
2. 1 pound of strawberries
3. 1 Tb. of Pomona’s pectin
4. Of course, your jars of choice
Begin by pouring the strawberries into a bowl and mashing them with a fork. Then pour lemon juice, mashed berries and sugar into a large pot, set on medium and heat to a rolling boil. On a separate burner, boil 3/4 cups of water and add 1 Tb. of pectin and stir until even. Pour pectin-water into the pot with other ingredients and stir. Let jam cool before scooping it into jars of your choice. Time to decorate them! How cute are the jars that Hilton Pittman Photography whipped up for this little DIY?
