Strawberry Kiwi Jam
3 cups of crushed strawberries
3 peeled and diced kiwi
1 Tablespoon of lemon juice
1 Tablespoon of minced crystallized ginger
1 package of pectin
5 cups of sugar
Start the recipe out by combining the strawberries, kiwi, ginger, lemon juice and the pectin together in a large saucepan. Do not use any sort of copper pans for making jams. Bring the mixture to a rapid boil being sure to stir it frequently. Add the sugar to the combination and return the mixture to a complete boil again. Once again stir the mixture constantly.

Continue to boil the mixture for an additional minute and then remove it from the heat. Skim off any foam that has developed. Ladle the final product into very hot, sterilized jars and leave a 1/4 inch headspace in each. Place the lids on the jars and process them in a boiling water bath for approximately 10 minutes. You may have to adjust the boiling time according to the altitude

Cook's Notes: I used a box of strawberry jell-o and 1 cup less of sugar. It made (7) 1/2 pints of jam.
