Recipe-no cook Strawberry jam

Who likes strawberries?  Does the thought of canning and making your own jam sound like too much work?  If so,  here’s a recipe for you!  What you will need is Drambuie liqueur.  I’ll have to send my husband to a liquor store for this. I have everything else on hand. 

No- Cook Strawberry Jam

1 quart crushed strawberries

4 cups sugar

2 Tablespoons lemon juice

1/2 bottle liquid fruit pectin


Thoroughly crush enough strawberries to measure 1 and 3/4 cups into a large bowl.  Add 2 Tablespoons of Drambuie liqueur.

Mix sugar into fruit and let stand 10 minutes.   Add citrus juice and pectin.  Continue to stir for 3 minutes.  Pour quickly into jars.   Cover immediately with tight tops.  Let the jam set about 24 hours.  Freeze.

Recipe makes about 5 cups.
