Makes 7 (1/2-pint) jars

We tried this recipe with fresh strawberries first, but they didn't hold their shape as well as frozen ones.

How to Make It

Step 1

Chop or crush thawed strawberries in a 4-cup measuring cup. Add water to strawberries to measure 2 1/2 cups.

Step 2

Stir together strawberry mixture, ruby port, grated lemon rind, and ground nutmeg in a large saucepan. Stir in fruit pectin.

Step 3

Bring mixture to a full rolling boil, and boil, stirring constantly, 1 minute. Add sugar, stirring constantly, and bring to a full rolling boil. Boil 1 minute. Remove from heat, and skim off any foam.

Step 4

Pour hot jam immediately into hot, sterilized jars, filling to 1/4 inch from top. Remove air bubbles; wipe jar rims. Cover at once with metal lids, and screw on bands.

Step 5

Process in boiling-water bath 10 minutes.

Step 6

Note: Ruby port is a deep red-colored sweet wine typically enjoyed as an after-dinner drink. It's usually sold in liquor stores because of a higher alcohol content than other wines.
