  • large roasting pan
  • deep dish baking pan
  • hand mixer
  • 12 mason jars, 8oz


  • 32 cups strawberries washed and hulled
  • 7 cups sugar
  • 3 cups stevia
  • 2 tbsp pectin
  • 2 lemons juice


  • Place washed and hulled strawberries with sugar and lemon juice in a large roasting pan and let marinate covered overnight.
  • Next day, preheat the oven to 340°F. Bake for 2 hours uncovered, stirring occasionally.
  • Using a hand blender, mash softened strawberries until smooth. Stir in dissolved pectin.
  • Place the roasting pan back into the oven and bake again for another hour uncovered.
  • If the jam has not thickened to your liking, transfer the mixture to a large pot and bring to a boil on the stovetop. Let cook on medium-high heat for about 30 minutes until thickened. Stir often to keep from burning on the bottom.
  • Transfer to hot sterile jars, leaving 1/4 to 1/2 inch headspace, clean rims of jars and seal with sterilized lids.
  • Place jars upright in a large deep dish baking pan and place in the oven for another 30 minutes at 210°F.
