Strawberry-Kiwi-Lime Jam


 You might want to keep all the jam you make, it is that good! But, if you

are feeling kind, this will make 12-4ounce jars. We use the Kerr Decorated 

Jam & Jelly Jars. MCP Pectin works very well and you can use the whole

2-ounce box. This is the first time I made jam on my own and it was so easy!




2 cups hulled strawberries, just cut off tops of strawberries

3 kiwifruit, cut in half and pulp scooped out with a spoon

3 1/2 cups granulated sugar

1 tablespoon lime juice

3/4 cup water

1 (2-ounce) box MCP Pectin



1.  Bring water to boil in a stockpot.

.  Puree strawberries in a blender, then pour into a large

     glass bowl. Take out a spatula to stir in the other

     ingredients we will be adding. 

3.  Puree the kiwifruit, add to the strawberries. You can

     strain them if you prefer. I like to strain them that is

     why they are pureed separately.

4.  Stir in the sugar and lime juice. Set your timer for 

     15 minutes. Stir the fruit now and then.

5.  Remove the stockpot from the heat and put in

     all the jam jars and lids. Then, place them out 

     on the counter so they are ready to fill.

6.  After 15 minutes, heat 3/4 cup water to boiling

     and then add the pectin. Heat for about 1 minute.

7.  Pour the pectin syrup into the fruit and stir for

     a full 3 minutes. 

8.  Ladle the jam into the jars and seal tightly. Let

     the filled jars sit out overnight on the counter

     until set. Then, refrigerate up to 3 weeks

     or freeze for up to 6 months if it lasts that long!

     Makes 12-4 ounce Jars that are perfect as gifts.
