Strawberry Balsamic Jam Recipe

    144 Servings


  • 8 cups Strawberries, whole and hulled
  • 4 tablespoons Lemon Juice
  • 3 tablespoons Balsamic Vinegar
  • Black Pepper, freshly ground - 3 grinds worth (optional)
  • 1 3/4 ounces Powdered Pectin
  • 6 1/2 cups Granulated Sugar


  1. In a large sauce pan, crush the strawberries. Add in the lemon juice, balsamic vinegar, and black pepper. Bring to a boil and then let simmer, stirring frequently.
  2. Prepare your canning supplies. Bring the temperature of the glass jars up by processing them in hot water for several minutes, and heat a few cups of water in a small saucepan for the lids.
  3. Stir in the pectin until dissolved. Bring back to a boil, and then add in the sugar all at once. Boil hard for a minute longer.
  4. Skim off any foam and ladle the hot jam into the hot jars, leaving 1/4″ headspace.
  5. Place the lids and bands on top, screwing on the bands just until fingertip-tight. Place the full jars back into the boiling water and process 10 minutes.
  6. Remove from the water and place the jars on a towel. Let the jars cool. The seals should suck down (you’ll hear a popping noise as they do). Makes 8-9 eight-ounce jars.
