Strawberry Cardamom Jam

02/14/2017

Roses are red,
Strawberries are pink,
When my kid’s eyes are that color,
Life kinda stinks.

Ingredients:

6 c crushed strawberries
7 c sugar
1 package pectin
1 T lemon juice
8-10 cardamom pods
12 pint jars with lids

Instructions:

Boil all your pint jars and lids for at least 10 minutes. While they are boiling, chop your berries add the cardamom seeds (removed from the pod) and set aside. Measure out the exact amount of sugar and set aside. Bring the berries to a boil over medium-high heat in a large sauce pan. Stir in 1 package of pectin. Bring to a rolling boil, stirring constantly. Add the sugar all at once, and stir. Bring to a rolling boil for exactly one minute. Remove from heat.

Fill the jars immediately to a 1/4 an inch. Wipe the rims and threads with a clean cloth. Cover with the two-piece lids. Place in the water bath that you used to sterilize the jars with the lip of the jar just out of the water. Bring the water to a boil for 10 minutes. Once done, remove from the water. Make sure the lid is on tight. Once it cools, the center of the lid should be sunken, which means the jar is pressurized. Enjoy on anything that could use some extra jammy sweetness!
