  • Hull and crush strawberries, one layer at a time. Measure exactly 2 cups prepared strawberries into large bowl. Peel and mash bananas. Measure exactly 1 cup prepared bananas into bowl with strawberries. Add sugar; mix well. Let stand 10 min., stirring occasionally.
  • Combine water and pectin crystals in small saucepan. Bring to boil on high heat; cook 1 min., stirring constantly. Add to fruit mixture; stir 3 min. or until most the sugar is dissolved and no longer grainy. (A few sugar crystals may remain.)
  • Pour into clean containers, filling up to 1/4 inch from rims. Cover with lids. Let stand at room temperature 24 hours or until set.

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 fruit mixture in bowl.
