  • Crush strawberries, one layer at a time. Place prepared strawberries in jelly bag; hang and let drip into bowl until dripping stops. Press bag gently to remove any remaining juices. Measure exactly 4-1/4 cups prepared juice into large saucepan. Combine 1/4 cup sugar and pectin crystals. Add to prepared juice; mix well.
  • Bring to full rolling boil on high heat, stirring constantly. Add remaining sugar; stir. Return to full rolling boil; cook 1 min., stirring constantly. Remove from heat. Stir and skim foam for 5 min.
  • Pour immediately into warm sterilized jars, filling to within 1/4 inch of rims. Cover with lids. Let stand at room temperature 24 hours or until set.

Note

For a clearer jelly, use 10 cups strawberries. Let juice drip into bowl until all dripping stops. Do not press or squeeze jelly bag.

If You Don't Have a Jelly Bag

If you don't have a jelly bag, you can use cheesecloth instead. Stack 3 layers of cheesecloth, then moisten with water. Place prepared fruit on centre of cheesecloth, then gather cheesecloth at top and tie closed with kitchen string. Hang and let prepared fruit drip into bowl as directed.

How to Accurately Measure the Sugar

To ensure accuracy of the sugar measure when preparing jams or jellies, use a dry measuring cup to measure the sugar, then place all the measured sugar in a separate bowl before adding it to the juice mixture in saucepan.
