Easy Strawberry-Orange Fruit Jam

image

I spied this yummy fruit recipe in Southern Living magazine and it started my craving for all things jam! It’s simple to make, and has the perfect balance of sweet and tangy flavors thanks to lemon citrus and fresh ginger. Of course you will want to use fresh strawberries if you can, and consider doubling the batch to give several jars away as gifts. Your friends and family will love you for it!

Easy Strawberry-Orange Fruit Jam


2 cups chopped fresh or frozen strawberries (or small whole berries)
1 cup chopped and seeded orange segments (about 2 oranges)
1-1/2 cups sugar
1 large lemon
2 tbsp plus 2 tsp powdered pectin (I used Ball Real Fruit Classic Pectin)
1 tsp finely grated fresh ginger (optional)

1. Stir together fruit and sugar in saucepan. Let stand 10 minutes. Meanwhile, zest lemon to equal 1 tsp. Cut lemon in half; squeeze juice from lemon into a bowl to equal 2 tsp. Remove seeds, peel and section the squeezed lemon, then chop.
2. Stir pectin and, if desired, ginger into fruit mixture, and bring to a rolling boil over medium heat, stirring often. Boil, stirring constantly, 5 minutes. Reduce heat to low; stir in lemon zest, chopped segments, and lemon juice. Cook, stirring occasionally, 3 minutes; remove from heat. Cool 10 minutes.
3. Pour jam into 2 (8-oz) canning jars, and cool completely (about 30 minutes). Cover with lids, and refrigerate up to 1 month.
