“This is just an old fashioned recipe for strawberry preserves. This recipe leaves the berries whole for a rich chunky jam.”

Wonderful recipe! I've used it for 30 years except I use 5 teaspoons of lemon juice rather than vinegar. For those of you who are having trouble getting your preserves to set - try a larger pot. If you aren't boiling your preserves "hard" enough they will not set. NEVER double the recipe and use a large pot rather than a pan. The preserves must be a rolling boil so that they reach 220 degrees and don't stir them often. This recipe was given to me 30 years ago by a lady who was 75 and had been given this recipe by her mother. It works, you just have to have patience and learn how to recognize the signs that the preserves are setting. Have fun!

Help!What did I do wrong? My perserves didn't set. Can you give me suggestions that will prevent this next time I make this reciepe. Thanks. I think I may not of got it hot enough. Would that do it? I'm going to use the jars I made as topping for sundae's. Tastes Great!

I've never made preserves before, because I don't know how to can. However, I had a 1/2 flat of strawberries on my hands so I decided to try making preserves. This was the recipe with which to start. Absolutely delicious. Easy to follow and full of flavor, this recipe tastes like my grandmother's homemade preserves. What a treat! The only change I made was pulsing the berries in the food processor briefly, prior to cooking. I did so that my 14 month old could enjoy the preserves, too.
