My strawberry jam is all fading! Still tastes OK but so NOT pretty ... any thoughts on how to prevent that in the future? This stuff will end up in bread puddings and such ...

Do you store it in a dark place?
I know this sounds silly, but my Grandmother always added a vitamin C tablet to the jar. It's one of those weird things I would never think of!! : )
Yeah it's in the pantry on the floor - well so I guess some light gets it when I am rooting around in there. Also I can't remember if I added lemin juice or not ... hmmm ...
I agree, lemon juice and storing in a dark place should do it. Did you use pectin? Jams made with pectin have a lot more water and I'm guessing would therefore potentially fade more easily
