  • 6 pounds strawberries hulled, sliced in half if large
  • 3 cups Granulated Sugar
  • 2 TBSP Lemon Juice


  • Combine ingredients in a large stock pot, bring to boil over medium high heat. Reduce heat to medium and simmer (stirring occasionally) until preserves fall off of the spoon somewhat thickly in a sheet (meaning they don't drip). Spoon mixture into jars, add lids and rings. Process in a boiling water bath for 10 minutes, remove, let cool.
