Whenever strawberries go on sale really cheap (50 cents a pound), I buy a bunch!!! I often remove stems on a bunch of them, put them in small baggies, and freeze them for smoothies. With the rest, I normally make jam. When my older sister suggested I add lime juice to mine, like she did on hers, my mouth started watering. Delish!
Wash, stem, and mash all of your strawberries. I use one of those hand held mixer things to mash them. Here is a general recipe and you can adjust it to however much strawberries that you have.
5 C mashed strawberries
the juice and zest of 2 limes
8 Tbsp maxigel
2 C sugar - or whatever sweetener you'd like. If the strawberries are really sweet, use less sweetener
Mix all ingredients together in a large pot and bring to a simmer. Spoon hot jam mixture into hot jars and process in a boiling water canner for 20 minutes.
