I had some organic strawberries from the store in the fridge which needed to be used. My strawberries are coming in now, and I can't bring myself to eat the ones from the store with lovely vine-ripe ones waiting for me! But I didn't want to waste them and decided to try some jam. I didn't have any pectin and didn't really want to use any and found this recipe here and in a few other places on-line otherwise, too. I had only 1 1/2 pounds of strawberries, so I adjusted to 3 cups of sugar but used the juice of a whole, large lemon. I didn't measure the juice. I got busy, and it cooked to about 230, but it turned out great anyway. Once I turned off the heat, I added some vanilla. Oh, and I didn't crush the strawberries, I just used them chopped. It will be a bit firmer than the orinal intended outcome, but the flavor is great, and I consider it a success. I got 2 full pints from my batch.
