Keeping Berries From Settling At Top Of Jam

I just made a couple of batches of Strawberry Jam, and I always have a problem of the berries settling at the top of the jar. Any suggestions?

Mine does that and we just stir before serving.

I have always tipped my jars up side down after canning and the berries are half way and to the bottom of the jar.

My seal has never broke from doing this.

If you stir and skim the jam (as it says in the Certo instructions) you shouldn`t have berries settling on the bottom of the jar.

Let it cool slightly and then stir before potting.

Use the sure gel they sell at the store I did the one year and made homemade strawberry jam turned out good. Just follow the instructions. Wanted to see if I could do it and did. Cool
