Hull and crush strawberries, one layer at a time. Measure exactly 2 cups prepared strawberries into large bowl. Add sugar; mix well. Let stand 10 min., stirring occasionally.
Combine water and pectin crystals in small saucepan. Bring to boil on high heat; cook 1 min., stirring constantly. Add to fruit mixture; stir 3 min. or until most the sugar is dissolved and no longer grainy. (A few sugar crystals may remain.)
Pour into clean containers, filling up to 1/4 inch from rims. Cover with lids. Let stand at room temperature 24 hours or until set. Refrigerate or freeze until ready to use.
Kraft Kitchen Tips!
Bruised, overripe or blemished fruit should not be used when making homemade jam. For best results, use fruits that are just at their peak of freshness. Measure any juice with the fruit.
No-cook jams can be refrigerated up to 3 weeks, or frozen up to 8 months.
How to Accurately Measure the Sugar
To ensure accuracy of the sugar measure when preparing jams or jellies, use a dry measuring cup to measure the sugar, then place all the measured sugar in a separate bowl before adding it to the fruit mixture in bowl.
