Quick Strawberry Jam

What better way to say "I love you" to your girlfriends for Valentine's Day, than homemade Jam!  This fresh strawberry jam recipe comes from Sure Jell's site, but you can also find it in the pectin box from the grocery store.  But, as always, I added a twist by incorporating lemon zest for a punch of brightness in flavor.  And the lemon cuts away a little of that overly sweet taste you can sometimes get from homemade jam.  Filled in classic mason jars, I've presented them in clear bags tied together with V-Day gift tags I made the other day.  Can't wait to gift them to my gal pals tonight!
