Ingredients

2 quarts strawberries, halved
7 cups sugar
1 packet liquid pectin

Directions

1. In large enameled saucepan combine strawberries and sugar. Set aside 15 minutes.
2. Meanwhile, sterilize jars, lids and rings. Bring strawberry mixture to a boil over medium heat, stirring occasionally. Cook at a rolling boil for 1 minute. Remove from heat and stir in pectin.
3. Skim off and discard surface from preserves. Cover jars with lids and rings; process in a boiling water bath for 10 minutes. Set aside to cool.

Strawberry preserves used to be ladled into jars while hot and sealed with melted paraffin. These days the government suggests processing preserves in a boiling water bath for 10 minutes.
