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.

To crush strawberries, crush only one layer at a time.

To prepare canning jars and metal funnel and measure, fill boiling water canner two-thirds full of hot water; cover and bring to boil. Wash and rinse jars, funnel and measure. Place in canner; cover and boil for 15 minutes.

To prepare lids, heat new canning lids in saucepan of boiling water just before jam is ready.
