Strawberry Preserves

My family loves this recipe. We put this on our favorite ice cream. It's also good on a bagel. We eat this for breakfast. I added 1 pack of certo sure jell into the strawberry mixture as it was cooking and i didn't let the mix stand uncovered for 12 hours i just put them right into the hot jars. lettin the mixture stand helps the berries to plump. oh by the way the certo sure jell helps make the preserve gel a little.
