  • Boil the strawberries one more time, let it cool down for 1 hour before placing into jars. Keep jars in a cool and dark area. 

The reason you boil for 5 minutes and let it cool down three times is so the strawberries keep their shape. If you like your jam less runny, boil the strawberries longer.
Enjoy!
