This Prize-Winning Strawberry Jam recipe has won ribbons for Mrs. Gilbert at the Dixie Classic Fair and the Stokes Fair. Three simple ingredients equals a mouth-watering fruit jam. If you don’t grow your own strawberries, look for fresh berries at a local farm stand or farmers’ market.
Mix berries and sugar and cook rapidly for about 20 minutes, stirring occasionally. Add lemon juice and cook about 10 minutes longer, or until thick. Pour into sterilized jars to within ¼ inch of the top. Put on jar lids and screw the metal bands tight. Process in a boiling-water bath for 10 minutes.
