Summer is the best time to make homemade strawberry jelly! All the gardens are starting to have fresh delicious strawberries that are ready to pick so between strawberry pie and strawberry jelly – we’re using them everyday!!
We make this jelly all summer and use it on our PB sandwiches, pancakes, and even as an ice cream topping. It’s so good and easy to make!
How to Make Homemade Strawberry Jelly
Ingredients You Need
1 Pound Fresh Strawberries
1 Teaspoon Lemon Juice
2-3 Tablespoons Honey
Start by washing, hulling and quartering your fresh strawberries
Place the strawberries, lemon juice, and honey in a good quality pot and cook on medium heat for 25 minutes
Continuously smash the strawberries with a wooden spoon to help release the juices of the strawberries and help the jelly to thicken
I like to leave my jelly with small chunks in it but if you want a smoother texture you can food process the jelly
Place in a Mason Jar and refrigerate for up to a week
There’s just something about making your own jelly’s that’s super satisfying. My Mom and I make all types of jelly’s and then can them to use during the winter months. It’s nice to have that fresh strawberry jelly taste even when it’s snowing outside because we were able to preserve some for the winter by canning.
