We Be Jammin'... Strawberry Margarita Jam



Strawberry Margarita Jam
Found on http://www.bhg.com

Yields: 7 half-pints

Ingredients 

3 cups crushed strawberries (about 6 cups whole berries)

2/3 cup lime juice

1/2 cup tequila

1/4 cup Triple Sec or other orange liqueur

6 cups sugar

1/2 of a 6-ounce package (1 foil pouch) liquid fruit pectin teaspoon finely shredded lime peel

Directions
1. In an 8- to 10-quart heavy pot combine strawberries, lime juice, tequila, and Triple Sec. Stir in sugar. Bring mixture to a full rolling boil, stirring constantly. Quickly stir in pectin and lime peel. Return to a full rolling boil, stirring constantly. Boil hard for 1 minute, stirring constantly. Remove from heat and quickly skim off foam with a metal spoon.

2. Ladle hot jam into hot sterilized half-pint canning jars, leaving a 1/4-inch headspace. Wipe jar rims; adjust lids and screw bands.

3. Process filled jars in a boiling-water canner for 10 minutes (start timing when water returns to boiling). Remove jars from canner; cool on wire racks, turning and tilting jars after 20 minutes to distribute fruit evenly throughout the jam. Repeat as necessary. Makes 7 half-pints.
