So anyway here is how you screw up strawberry jam.
Then you heat it up to boiling(according to the directions on the Sure Jell), then you add 7 cups of sugar and stir it until you know that it is mixed in good (you won't have that gritty feeling anymore). Heat it to a rolling boil; boil one minute. Remove from heat and put in jars. Process in a boiling water bath 15 minutes.
I suppose that I could have just told you that it jelled great and tasted wonderful (I see that often on the Internet) but I just don't see where the learning would be in that. It has been almost 4 hours now (yes I have heard it can take a couple days but I do know better. Never had one that was actually going to jell take a couple days) so we likely have syrup.
I am rather pleased myself except that I didn't win the jam war I am playing with myself yet.
