Strawberry Microwave Jam

3 1/2 c Whole strawberries 

1 1/2 tbsp Lemon Juice 

1 1/2 c White Sugar 

1/2 tsp Butter or Margarine

Hull and crush Strawberries to make about 2 cups. Place fruit in a 2-3 quart glass bowl. Add Lemon Juice, Sugar, and Butter. Mix. Cover with Wax Paper. Microwave on High (100%) for about 6 minutes or until it comes to a boil. Remove wax paper and stir fruit mixture. Microwave uncovered for another 15-20 minutes on High. (Jam will set to a good consistency if it begins to coat a metal spoon. Test by dripping fruit mixture from side of spoon; droplets should be thick.) If it does not set to boil and then re-cook for 2 more minutes and test. Pour into hot sterilized jars (fill about 2/3 full). Cover with Lid and Cool.

Makes about 2 cups
