Strawberry Jelly... you thought it couldnt be done

I do believe my mom stole this recipe from the sure gel package. In fact, im so sure, that ill tell you that if you want to make mango, grape, or any other fruit jelly it can tell you the right proportions.

Like her pickles, my mom prepares a huge batch of the pureed strawberries when they are in high season in the spring. She simply cleans and blends them in huge quantities, but freezes them in 1 pint (2 cup) bags and thaws one when we run out of jelly.

2 c pureed strawberries
4 c sugar

3/4 c water

1 package Sure Gel

*Mix pureed strawberries and sugar and let sit for 10 minutes
*In a small saucepan (this is one of those times a good saucepan is important) mix water and Sure Gel on high heat, STIRRING CONSTANTLY!
*Bring it to a boil and continue beating for 1 MIN

*Pour the gel mixture into the sugar puree and continue stirring for 3 MINs
*pour jelly into desired containers (small jars, tupperwear containers, whatev)
*let sit out overnight, for a day, whatever
*refrigerate and enjoy!

Put it on some homemade bread!!
