Good ole strawberry jam gets a fresh boost of flavor with a hint of orange mixed in.

Ingredients

  • cups crushed strawberries (about 1¾ qts whole strawberries)
  • ½ cup oranges, peeled and cut into small bites
  • 3 cups sugar
  • 1 pkg (1.75 oz) Sure Jell Fruit Pectin for Less or No Sugar Recipes*
  • 1 cup water
  • zest from 1 orange

Instructions

  • To crush strawberries, working in batches, place a layer of berries in a bowl and mash with a potato masher until pulpy. Continue mashing layers until you have 3½ dry measuring cups worth of mashed berries.
  • In a large sauce pan, stir the sugar and pectin together until mixed. Stir in 1 cup of water. Bring the mixture to a boil on medium-high heat, stirring constantly. Continue to stir and boil for 1 minute. Remove from heat.
  • Add the crushed strawberries, orange pieces and orange zest into the large sauce pan with the pectin mixture. Stir for 1 minute.
  • Fill jars immediately with prepared jam. Leave ½ space at the top of each for expansion during freezing. Cover with lids.
  • Let stand at room temperature for 24 hours. After that, refrigerate up to 3 weeks, or freeze up to 1 year. ½

Notes

*if you are using another brand of fruit pectin other than Sure Jell, (such as Ball, Certo or MCP), follow the instructions provided with the pectin instead of the instructions I have provided, otherwise the jam may not set correctly.  Just make sure to replace ½ cup of the called for amount of strawberries with orange bits.
