Prep Time 5 minutes
Cook Time 20 minutes
Water Bath Canning Processing Time 15 minutes
Total Time 40 minutes


  • 8 Cups Strawberries
  • 3 Sliced Serrano Peppers
  • 1/4 Cup Lemon Juice
  • 6 Tbs Pectin (or 1 package of Pectin in the Box)
  • 6 Cups Sugar


  1. Combine Strawberries, Serrano Peppers and Lemon Juice into a Dutch oven or cooking pot.
  2. Use a potato masher to help release the juices from the fruit as it cooks.
  3. Stir and bring up to a boil. Lower to a simmer and add the Pectin, stir until combined.
  4. Add the sugar, stirring until dissolved, then bring the mixture back up to a boil.
  5. Continue to boil and stir occasionally to prevent sticking/scorching for 5 min.
  6. Then add the jam to warmed jars, leaving a 1/2" headspace.
  7. Wipe rims of jars and place lid/ring on each jar, finger tightening the ring.
  8. Place jars into water bath canner for processing, making sure water covers the jars by an inch or two. The minimum processing time is 15 min; add as necessary based on your altitude.
  9. Once processing is complete, let the jars sit in the water bath canner for about 5 minutes, then transfer to a towel/dish drying mat for 12-24 hours for cooling and sealing. Listen for the pings as they seal!
  10. After 12-24 hours, you can remove the rings, making sure the jars all sealed, label jars and place in a cool, dry place for storage. 50-70 degrees is optimal.
  11. If any jars did not seal, place them in the refrigerator for enjoying now!


This sweet and spicy jam sure is tasty! Like it hot, add more peppers or a spicier pepper. Like it mild, add fewer peppers or a milder pepper.
