Homemade Pickles and Preserves (Slide 1)

(Slide 1 of 25)   Start at the beginning | View recipes as list

This strawberry preserve recipe is made in small batches, to reduce the amount of time the fruit is heated so it retains more of its intense fresh flavor. If you use about 25 percent underripe berries in the mix of berries (they’re higher in natural pectin), you don’t have to add any store-bought pectin.
