I remember making dozens of jars of jam every year with my Mom between 1955-1970. Now I make only a few at a time and I added ginger to the REC- you can omit it if you like.
THE GRANT FAMILY STRAWBERRY JAM
1 qt ripe strawberries, hulled
3 C sugar
2 tsp grated fresh ginger
1 qt boiling water
Put berries in a colander and pour the water over them. Drain thoroughly. Put berries into a saucepan with 1 cup of the sugar. Bring to a boil and cook 2 minutes. Cool for 5 minutes. Add 2 cups sugar and the ginger. Boil for 5 minutes. Skim the top. Put in a crock or ceramic bowl, cover and let sit on your counter for 3 days. Stir once a day. After 3 days, put jam in jars and keep in the refrigerator or can it.
