My new counters we installed yesterday! The plumber will be here today to hook up the faucet, but I had strawberries that NEEDED attention, so I decided to can them up even without the use of my sink.
You want 4 cups of mashed strawberries and one cup of chopped jalapenos. Miraculously, those were the exact measurements that I had... I used up the berries we picked the other day and also the frozen jalapenos from last fall's harvest.
Mix in a large saucepan with 1/4 c lemon juice and a package of pectin.
Bring to a boil, then add 7 cups of sugar. Return to a boil and let it go for a minute.
Bottle 'em up and BWB for 10 minutes.
I got the equivalent of about 9 1/2-pint jars (not pictured is the one already in the fridge!) It's not a hot jam, but it definitely has a kick to it. I can't wait to serve it over cream cheese with homemade crackers!
