We are starting our summer canning with strawberry jam.
Normally I use low/no sugar pectin and only add a cup or two of sugar in my recipe. However I'm out of that so I'm using up some regular pectin. This uses more sugar then I like, but considering how small of a serving you use it's not to bad.
Basic Strawberry Jam Recipe

1 packet powdered pectin
Mash berries and add lemon juice and pectin.
Bring to a boil and add sugar.
Boil for 1 minute.
Remove from heat, stir and skim for 5 min.
Ladle into jars and can for 10 min.
