I want to try making homemade strawberry jam, and I want to know how long it will keep after put in glass jars. Can anyone help? I have also heard it will keep longer "if the jars are sealed" how do you seal them?
Thanks!

Brandy-
You might get more response if you post your question on the "Great Food" bulletin board...just click at the bottom of the page on "hop-to" then go to Great Food.
Anyway, have you considered making freezer jam? It is safe, keeps indefinitely, and tastes fresher and better too. I usually just follow the instructions that come inside a box of Pectin- find that in the baking section of your supermarket. Recipes are all in there along with storage instructions. I think there are also recipes if you prefer to "jar" your jam.
Good Luck.....
