From my favorite canning book “Canning for a New Generation”.
Put hulled strawberries into a non reactive pan over medium to high heat and bring to a simmer, stirring frequently. Once simmering, continue to cook for 5 minutes. Remove from heat and gently pour into a very fine mesh sieve or jelly bag (these can be bought at most grocery or canning supply stores) and let the juice drain out into a bowl. Once the juice has stopped dripping you have your strawberry pulp left in the bag or sieve. The juice can be used in other recipes for syrups or jellies if you wish.
Puree the strawberry pulp in a food processor or blender.
Put the pulp and all remaining butter ingredients in a wide, nonreactive preserving pan (or stock pot).
Cook over medium or medium-low heat, stirring constantly to keep it from sticking, until the mixture is very thick and a couple of shades darker, around 15 minutes.
This recipe usually makes about 7 1/2 pint jars.
Ladle the mixture into jars, assemble lids and rings and process in a boiling water bath for 5 minutes.
If you are lucky enough to live where the cherries are aplenty I advise you to print out this Sweet Cherry Vanilla Jam recipe and tape it somewhere that you will not forget about it when the cherries come into season! Or you can use frozen cherries like I did.
This recipe was made using the new Ball Jam & Jelly Maker but you can make it the traditional way also.
Nancy is the Coupon Clipping Cook, which means she not only has an astounding number of recipes to share with us (her TK recipe box is busting at the seams!) but she's also got loads of money-saving tips in her blog (she worked at a grocery store for a number of years, so she knows her stuff). She has some pretty amazing creations, like Roasted Garlic Potato Soup and Nutty Coconut Chicken. Go check them out!
Heather is a Texas native and the blogger behind Heather's Dish. She's mom to Weston, wife to Nate, and they live in Little Rock, Arkansas with their two "stubborn and saucy" dogs Bunker and Keira. In her blog, she shares her photographs, random musings (serious and silly alike), and all kinds of scrumptious recipes---and not just evil variations of her favorite mac and cheese. Her enviable TK recipe box is a testament to that. Go see for yourself!
