  • Crush strawberries, one layer at a time. Measure exactly 2 cups prepared strawberries into large saucepan. Thinly slice or chop rhubarb. Measure exactly 2-1/2 cups prepared rhubarb into saucepan with strawberries; mix well. Combine 1/4 cup sugar and pectin crystals. Add to fruit mixture; 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. to prevent fruit from floating to surface.
  • 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.

How to Accurately Measure the Sugar
