use a blender for strawberry jelly?
I'm considering making some strawberry jelly. the recipes I read call for mashing them up (saying the more you mash them the better), mixing the pectin in and boiling, making sure to get the pectin mixed really well.
can I just throw them in the blender and throw the pectin in with it? that way the strawberries will be well mashed, and the pectin would mix in well. good idea or bad idea?
the idea is to make non chunky jelly, as opposed to jam.
