- Portion size 75 servings
- 6 cups crushed hulled strawberries (12 cups/3 L whole)
- 1 pkg light fruit pectin crystals
- 4 1/2 cups granulated sugar
Pour strawberries into large Dutch oven.
Combine pectin crystals with 1/4 cup (50 mL) of the sugar; stir into pan. Bring to full rolling boil over high heat, stirring constantly. Stir in remaining sugar; return to full rolling boil. Boil hard for 1 minute, stirring constantly.
Remove from heat. Stir for 5 minutes to prevent fruit from floating, skimming off foam.
Using sterilized metal funnel and 1/2-cup (125 mL) measure, pour into hot sterilized 1-cup (250 mL) canning jars, leaving 1/4-inch (5 mm) headspace. If necessary, wipe rims. Cover with hot lids; screw on bands fingertip tight. Process in boiling water canner for 5 minutes. Remove jars and let cool, undisturbed, for 24 hours. Check for seal, ensuring that lids curve downward. (If not, refrigerate and use within 3 weeks.) Store in cool, dry, dark place for up to 1 year.
