No Cook Strawberry Jam

1 ½ cups sugar
¼ cup plus 2 tablespoons Ball RealFruit Instant Pectin
2 pounds strawberries, hulled and quartered
2 ½ tablespoons fresh lemon juice
2 ½ tablespoons finely grated peeled fresh ginger
Pinch of kosher salt

In a bowl, whisk the sugar with the pectin. In a food processor, pulse half of the strawberries until finely chopped, then transfer them to the sugar mixture. Repeat with the remaining strawberries. Add the lemon juice, ginger and salt and stir until the sugar is dissolved, 5 minutes.
Spoon the jam into clean glass jars or plastic containers, leaving ¾ inch of space at the top. Let the jam stand at room temperature until slightly thickened, 30 minutes. Refrigerate until the jam is chilled and set, 1 hour.

These are great for Potato salad, chicken salad and just to eat if you love sweet pickles. This is hubby's favorite pickle and recipe came from his mother.
