Crush 12 cups of strawberries in a sauce pan. Heat to a boil and then simmer until soft. Approximately 5-10 minutes. Strain hot through a colander and drain until cool enough to handle. Strain juice through cheesecloth. Discard dry pulp. You should have 4 1/2 - 5 cups of juice.
Combine juice, 6 3/4 cups sugar and 1/2 cups sliced, diced or whole strawberries (whatever your preference is).
Bring to a rolling boil; boil for 1 minute. Remove from heat and skim off foam. Pour into 4 pint jars and process for 15 minutes in water bath canner.
I plan to use these as some of my Christmas from the Heart gifts. I will be looking for some cute ice cream cups to go with this.
