Making Strawberry Jam

3 Cups of crushed strawberries
4 1/2 Cups of sugar
1/2 Squeezed fresh lemon

Wash strawberries...

Great for composting...

Sliced and ready to be turned into jam.
*photo missing* take the bottom of a cup and mash the strawberries, measure 3 cups of mashed strawberries and add all ingredients to a bread machine. Select "jam" cycle (mine was 13).

Boil jars and lids to sterilize...

It takes 10-15 minutes...

This is what it looked like after 1 hr 15 min in the bread machine

Carefully pour hot jam into the hot jar.
Put lids on immediately to seal

Jam is ready!

Does it say what to do for those of us who don't have bread machines? :)
