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
