Looks like I'm late using this recipe, but I've never had better strawberry jam! Always tastes like fresh strawberries. My husband loves it and I have to hurry if I get any of it at all! One change I made was that I didn't have a 6 oz pkg or 2 3 oz pkgs of strawberry jello, so I used 1 strawberry and 1 cranberry. It just couldn't be better if we tried! Thank you for the recipe. Love it.

Hi Pat. Nobody has been here for a year? Anyway... I made green tomato/serrano/strawberry jam with this recipe and its wonderful. I just finished making watermelon/strawberry jam. We shall see how that turns out. Its so easy unless you make it difficult like i do by using the food mill and a sieve.
