Summertime is not the only time you can make strawberry preserves. Frozen strawberries are widely available and perfect for preserves.
Makes about 2-1/2 cups
1 package (1 lb.) frozen whole unsweetened strawberries
1-1/2 cups granulated sugar
1 teaspoon lemon juice
1/2 teaspoon lemon zest
1/3 cup water
2-1/2 tablespoons no-sugar-needed fruit pectin powder
No-sugar-needed fruit pectin powder allows you to reduce the amount of sugar added to preserves, making this a lower-in-sugar and healthier option.
Sugar mixtures bubble and rise during microwaving. Stirring mixtures every few minutes prevents bubbling over.
