Homemade Strawberry Jam

While Shopping at Costco last night I came across the Strawberries and decided I really wanted to make some jam. It must be getting nice out side ....LOL...And I found the easiest recipe I thought I would share:

Homemade Strawberry Jam

1 quart ripe mashed strawberries
4 cups sugar, (do not reduce the sugar)
3/4 cup water
1 box fruit pectin, available at your grocers
Plastic storage containers (these need to be cute to help make the whole experience)

Measure 2 cups mashed strawberries into a large bowl. Stir in sugar and let stand for 10 minutes.
In a small saucepan, bring water and pectin to a boil, stirring constantly. Let the mixture boil for one minute while continuing to stir.
Combine fruit mixture with pectin mixture. Stir until all sugar is dissolved (about 3 minutes). Add the remaining strawberries to this mixture.
Fill the plastic containers to within 1/2 inch from the top. Cover with lids and let stand at room temperature for 24 hours.
Refrigerate up to 3 weeks.
This jam can be frozen for up to one year.

Doesn't this sound so Yummy.....
