The author obviously does NOT KNOW the difference between JAM and JELLY! This was a waste of MY time in search of a strawberry JELLY recipe!

I'm very sad to say, despite the title, this is a jam recipe and not a jelly recipe at all.

How long will the canned jelly be good for?

The jars say 18 months. As long as they are sealed this should be a good rule! I make lots of strawberry jelly and I just use the SurJell recipe in the box. I also use a NuWAVE hot plate to get consistant heat and after I add the sugar I let it boil for 1/1/4 minutes. Works every time and never had any that did not jell! Strawberry Jelly is so much better than jam. Extracting the juice is a lot easier than cutting up strawberries for jam.
