If you've never canned before, strawberry jam is a great way to get your feet wet! This step by step guide will help you get started canning today!

Canning may seem overwhelming, but it really is quite easy and safe!"

Remove stems, wash, and cut and quarter all your strawberries

Use a whisk or masher to crush the strawberries, any chunks left will be in the finished jam.

Add 3 cups of white sugar  (OR 1.5 cups sugar and 1.5 cups honey) per QUART of strawberries. Combine in a large saucepan and heat over medium heat.

Boil jam (always stirring) until it is thick enough to coat the spoon. Ladle hot jam into CLEAN and WARM canning jars (any size). Leave 1/4" of space at the top of the jars (headspace).

Clean the rims of any jam, place 2 piece canning lids onto jar and gently tighten. Place in a LARGE pot of almost boiling water (make sure jars are covered by about 2" of water).

Increase heat and once water is boiling, set a timer for 15 minutes. After 15 min. turn off the heat and remove jars from water (set on a towel on the counter). Let cool before moving.
