Prep Time5 minutes
Cook Time40 minutes
Servings2 cups


  • 1 quart strawberries, hulled frozen is fine but give a bit more time to get to the right consistency
  • ½ cup sugar
  • 2 tablespoon lemon juice optional but an acid is highly recommended!


  • Put all ingredients in medium size heavy saucepan.
  • Bring to a low boil on medium heat.
  • Boil gently for 7 minutes.
  • If needed, blend into smaller bits (or...use a potato masher)
  • Simmer on low for 45 minutes or until desired consistency.
  • Pour into hot, clean unused mason jars.
  • Flip the jars over and cover with a hot towel. Let cool and don't move until you hear the top pop.
  • Store in fridge for up to 2 months. (once opened use within 1 month)



You can skip the process of using hot jars and a hot towel but it will shorten your storing time to 1-2 weeks in the fridge.
