Perfect Strawberry Jam

This twist on classic strawberry jam includes a hint of honey. For best results, farm stand strawberries are essential (do not attempt with supermarket strawberries!). If your jam separates in the hot water bath and all the fruit floats to the top (known as "fruit float"), don't worry—gently shake or roll the jars every 30 minutes or so as they cool to redistribute the strawberries.
