We Be Jammin'... Strawberry Orange Creamsicle Jam



Strawberry Orange Creamsicle Jam 
Found on Pinterest

3 cups crushed strawberries 

2/3 cup frozen orange juice concentrate 

1/4 cup orange liqueur (optional) 

6 cups white sugar 

1 (3 ounce) pouch liquid fruit pectin 

1-1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract 

1 orange, zested 

7 half pint canning jars with lids and rings 

Directions 

Combine strawberries, orange juice concentrate, and orange liqueur in an 8 to 10-quart pot. Gradually stir sugar into mixture until dissolved. Bring mixture to a boil, continually stirring. Add pectin, vanilla extract, and orange zest; return to a boil and boil for 1 minute. 

Remove from heat and skim off foam using a metal spoon. 

Pack jam into the hot, sterilized jars, filling the jars to within 1/4 inch of the top. Run a knife or a thin spatula around the insides of the jars after they have been filled to remove any air bubbles. Wipe the rims of the jars with a moist paper towel to remove any food residue. Top with lids, and screw on rings. 

Process for 10 minutes in a boiling water bath. Remove the jars from the stockpot and place onto a cloth-covered or wood surface, several inches apart, until cool. Once cool, press the top of each lid with a finger, ensuring that the seal is tight (lid does not move up or down at all). Store in a cool, dark area.
