Retro Strawberry Jam

We first published this in the June ’95 issue of Foodstuffs Hot Off the Griddle, but this recipe is actually much older.


  • 4 lbs. berries
  • 6 lbs. sugar
  • Certo
  • juice of 1 lemon


  1. Bring to berries and sugar full rolling boil and boil 5 minutes.
  2. Add 1/2 bottle of Certo and juice of 1 lemon.
  3. Boil 5 minutes.
  4. Take from heat, add 1/4 tsp. butter.
  5. Stir till all froth is gone.

This is very good, and is NOT in the Certo book.
