Strawberry Jam

Strawberry Jam

2 pounds fresh strawberries, hulled
2 cups white sugar
1/4 cup lemon juice

Crush strawberries in batches until you have 4 cups of mashed berry. (I used the magic bullet for this batch, so it's not quite a puree).  In a heavy bottomed saucepan, mix together the strawberries, sugar, and lemon juice. (Don't leave the kitchen.  It will boil over instantly!!)  Stir over low heat until the sugar is dissolved. Increase heat to high, and bring the mixture to a full rolling boil. Boil, stirring often, until the mixture reaches 220 degrees F (105 degrees C). Transfer to hot sterile jars, leaving 1/4 to 1/2 inch head space, and seal. Process in a water bath.
