Citrus Strawberry Jam

  • 4 cups mashed strawberries (about 3 pints whole)
  • 3/4 – 2 cups sugar (depending on how sweet you like your jam)
  • 1 T each orange and lemon zest
  • 2 t Pomona’s Pectin
  • 2 t calcium water (calcium helps pectin gel and it’s in the Pomona’s box!)

Combine mashed fruit and zests and calcium water in pan. In a separate bowl thoroughly mix pectin powder and sugar. Bring strawberries to boil, add pectin-sugar. Stir vigorously 1-2 minutes while cooking to dissolve pectin. Return to boil. Remove from heat. Fill sterilized jars to 1/4” of top and screw on lids. Put filled jars in boiling water to cover. Process 5 minutes. Remove and let cool.
