We've all seen that commercial about the jelly that "has to be good." It is, but homemade jelly is just ... well ... better. Sorry, Smucker's. Try this easy strawberry jelly recipe and see what you think. 

Cuisine: American
Prep Time: 3 hours and 15 minutes
Cook Time: 15 minutes

Servings: Makes 6 8-ounce jars


  • 3 pints strawberries, washed and hulled
  • 5 cups sugar
