  • 2 pounds (900g) fresh strawberries, washed and hulled

  • 4 cups granulated sugar

  • 1/4 cup lemon juice

  • 2 tablespoons cannabis-infused butter or coconut oil (adjust potency to your preference)

  • 1/4 cup water

  • 1 package (1.75 oz or 49g) powdered fruit pectin


1. Preparing the Jars:
  • Wash canning jars and lids with hot soapy water.

  • Rinse and place them in a large pot with water. Simmer until ready to use.

2. Preparing the Strawberries:
  • Crush strawberries with a potato masher or pulse in a food processor for your desired texture.

3. Cooking the Strawberries:
  • Combine strawberries, sugar, lemon juice, cannabis-infused butter or oil, and water in a large pot.

  • Stir well and bring to a rolling boil over medium-high heat, stirring frequently.

4. Adding the Pectin:
  • Sprinkle powdered pectin over the boiling mixture, stirring continuously to avoid clumps.

  • Boil for one minute while stirring.

5. Testing Gel Consistency:
  • Spoon a small amount onto a chilled plate and freeze for a minute.

  • Press the jam gently with your finger; it should wrinkle if ready. If runny, cook another minute and test again.

6. Filling the Jars:
  • Remove jars from hot water with tongs.

  • Ladle hot jam into jars, leaving about 1/4 inch of headspace.

  • Wipe rims clean, place lids on, and tighten bands finger-tight.

7. Processing the Jars:
  • Return filled jars to the pot of hot water, ensuring water covers jars by at least 1 inch.

  • Boil gently for 10 minutes to sterilize and seal jars.

8. Cooling and Storing:
  • Remove jars and place on a towel-lined surface.

  • Cool undisturbed for 12 to 24 hours until you hear the "ping" sound indicating sealed jars.

  • Store in a cool, dark place for up to a year. Refrigerate after opening and consume within a few weeks.
