Simple Strawberry Jam, Pomona Style

9:50 AM Posted In , , , Edit This 0 Comments »
This is the method of making strawberry jam using Pomona pectin. The same recipe will work with these different fruits: kiwi, currant, raspberry, gooseberry, sour blackberry, sour cherry, sour plum and pineapple.

Simple Strawberry Jam

8 cups mashed fruit (that's about 16 cups whole fruit)
1 1/2-4 cups sugar, to taste
4 tsp pectin
4 tsp calcium water

Put mashed berries into pot. Add calcium water and stir well. Measure out sugar in a separate bowl and mix in pectin powder. Be thorough!

Bring fruit to boil. Mix in sugar/pectin mixture and stir vigorously for 1-2 minutes. Be sure the pectin is dissolved. Bring fruit back to a boil. Remove from heat.

Ladle into prepared jars and process in a BWB for 10 minutes, or more, depending on your elevation. Check my sidebar for a link, if you need a lesson on BWB canning.
