Instructions
  1. Prepare the jars and lids: -Take the rings off of the sealing lid and put aside. -Put sealing lids in a pot, cover with water and bring to a boil. (The lids need to come to a boil and they're sanitized. You can prepare these early then boil later.) -Rinse and/or wash jars and put in the 200 degree oven upside down.
  2. Prepare your freshly picked strawberries: -Thoroughly rinse strawberries under cold running water. -After rinsing, cap strawberries and put in a very large pot. -Chop strawberries using a Serrated Tooth Edge Manual Food Chopper.
  3. Make strawberry honey: -Put strawberries in the largest pot you own. This is necessary because the mixture doubles in size when cooking. -Add the sugar. -If you have time, stir and let the mixture sit until sugar dissolves. -Bring to a rolling boil, stirring frequently. -Boil for 20 minutes, continuing to stir often.
  4. Prepare to put strawberry honey in jars: -Remove strawberry honey from heat and skim foam off of the top until only strawberry honey remains. -Remove jars from the oven and place near your pot. -Put funnel over each jar and scoop strawberry honey into the jar. -If necessary, skim any remaining foam off of honey in the jar. -Use a damp paper towel to wipe off the edge of each jar. -Using the magnetic lid lifter, place the lid on the top of each jar. -Using a hot pad, hold the jar, place the ring over the lid and tighten. -Invert the jars and set a timer for 5 minutes. When the five minutes are up, your jars will be sealed; wait for the popping of the lids to start. It's a wonderful summer sound in our family!
