Strawberry Limoncello Jam

Total Time

Prep: 30 min. Process: 10 min.


about 10 half-pints

This is one of my top-selling jams at the farmers market during the spring. It's amazing over a scoop of fresh vanilla ice cream, on a toasted waffle, or served with fresh goat cheese and crackers. —Krystal Wertman, Humble, Texas

  • 5 cups crushed strawberries (about 3 pounds)
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1/4 cup lemon juice
  • 6 tablespoons powdered fruit pectin
  • 7 cups sugar
  • 1/2 cup limoncello
  • 1 teaspoon grated lemon zest
  • 10 half-pint jars


  1. In a Dutch oven, combine strawberries, water and lemon juice. Stir in pectin. Bring to a full rolling boil over high heat, stirring constantly. Stir in sugar; return to a full rolling boil. Boil and stir 1 minute. Immediately stir in limoncello and zest.
  2. Remove from heat; skim off foam. Ladle hot mixture into 10 hot half-pint jars, leaving 1/4-in. headspace. Remove air bubbles and adjust headspace, if necessary, by adding hot mixture. Wipe rims. Center lids on jars; screw on bands until fingertip tight.
  3. Place jars in a canner with simmering water, ensuring that they are completely covered with water. Bring to a boil; process for 10 minutes. Remove jars and cool.
