4 cups water
1 box Sure Jell Fruit Pectin
tsp margarine (optional)
5 cups sugar, measure into separate bowl

Directions:
Wash jars and screw bands in hot soapy water; rinse with warm water. Bring saucepan of water to boil. Add flat lids and rings and turn off heat. Let stand in hot water until ready to use.

Place washed berries in large saucepan. Add water. Bring to boil. Reduce heat to low; cover and simmer 10 minutes, stirring occasionally. Crush cooked berries. Place 3 layers of damp cheesecloth or jelly bag in large bowl. Strain prepared fruit in cheesecloth. Squeeze out juice being careful not to let pulp into bowl. Measure exactly 4 cups prepared juice into 6- or 8-quart saucepot. (If needed, add up to 1/2 cup water for exact measure.) Stir pectin into juice in saucepot. Add butter to reduce foaming, if desired. Bring mixture to full rolling boil (a boil that doesn't stop bubbling when stirred) on high heat, stirring constantly. Stir in sugar. Return to full rolling boil and boil exactly 1 minute, stirring constantly. Remove from heat. Skim off any foam with metal spoon.

Ladle immediately into prepared jars, filling to within 1/8 inch of tops. Wipe jar rims and threads. Cover with 2-piece lids. Screw bands tightly. Place jars in canner or large pot of water. (Water must cover jars by 1 to 2 inches. Add boiling water, if necessary.) Cover; bring water to gentle boil. Process 5 minutes. Remove jars and place upright on towel to cool completely. After jars cool, check seals by pressing middle of lid with finger. (If lid springs back, lid is not sealed and refrigeration is necessary.)

Personal Notes:
Going to MaMaw's house was always the highlight of my summer. Watching her make jellies and canning fresh vegetables from PaPaw's garden gave me the love for fresh food.
