Sweet Strawberry Jam Recipe
We found this strawberry jam recipe to be really easy. It only calls for three simple ingredients that nearly everyone will have on hand! It doesn't even call for pectin - but it thickens nicely nonetheless. As with many non-pectin recipes, this one will appear to be watery when you first make it. Don't worry; it will thicken up in the refrigerator.
The first time I made this scrumptious recipe, I had made a big batch of cinnamon rolls the same day. For the record, warm cinnamon rolls dipped in a fresh batch of this jam is nearly too good to be true!

This jam makes an excellent ice-cream topping.
It's so strawberry!
Sweet Strawberry Jam
2 pounds fresh strawberries, hulled
4 C. white sugar
1/4 C. lemon juice
In a large mixing bowl, crush berries until you have 4 cups of mashed berries. In a heavy saucepan, mix together the mashed strawberries, sugar, and lemon juice. Stir over low heat until sugar is dissolved.
Increase heat to high, and bring the mixture to a full rolling boil. Boil, stirring often, until the mixture reaches 220* F.(This is about 15 minutes.) Transfer to hot sterile jars, leaving 1/4 - 1/2 inch headspace. Place lids and rims on jars; process in water bath for 20 minutes.
