Aunt LoLo's Strawberry Lime Jam

I kind of made this up, based on some other recipes I saw out there. They all called for lemons, though...and I had limes. It turned out great! My daughter was eating the remnants out of the pan with a spoon.

Aunt LoLo's Strawberry-Lime Jam
2 lbs. strawberries, washed, hulled and cut

3 cups granulated sugar

The juice and zest of two small limes

Cook over medium heat until the berries are macerated, and the juice is starting to gel (about 220 degrees F.) Use a frozen saucer to test the thickness of the jam as it nears 220 F.

Pack into sterilized jars.

Process 10 minutes in a hot water bath. Makes 2 pints.
