"As viscous as motor oil swirled in a swamp, redolent of burnt bell peppers nested in by incontinent mice and a finish reminiscent of the dregs of a stale can of Coca-Cola that someone has been using as an ashtray. Not a bad drink, though."--Excerpt from "The Moose Turd Wine Tasting" by T. A. Nonymous

Directions:

Completely crush with a potato masher, one layer at a time, fully ripe strawberries that have been washed and drained.

Measure 2 cups crushed berries into large bowl. Measure sugar and add to fruit and mix well. Let sit 10 minutes, stirring often.

Combine 3/4 cup water and Sure-Jell in a small saucepan. Bring to a boil and boil one minute, stirring constantly. Stir into fruit mixture. Continue stirring three minutes.

Quickly ladle into jars that have been washed, scalded and drained. Cover at once with scalded tight lids. Keep at room temperature (up to 24 hours). Then store in freezer. May be stored in refrigerator for up to 3 weeks.


On a visit with Mom Bundy (Grandmother) in her later years, she told me she had frozen strawberries, but had not felt like making them into freezer jam. I got great pleasure in making the jam for her!
