Strawberry Freezer Jam

**Click HERE to enter our giveaway**

I love strawberries, they are one of my most favorite fruits...therefore that makes Strawberry Freezer Jam one of my most favorite jams! Last year I got a killer deal on some flats of strawberries, so I bought 2 of them...BUT I didn't know what I was going to do with all of these beautiful, ripe berries. YES, I ate plenty of them, but I thought that I should be more productive and do some preserving of some kind. I came across this recipe for freezer jam and thought that it sounded very easy and right up my alley. I tried it out and it wasn't only easy, it was delicious as well! I could hardly keep the family from eating it up, one container right after another...needless to say, it didn't last long and I am eager to make some more this year.
Make some up, you will be shocked at how easy it is!
....AND you'll love it too!

Strawberry Freezer Jam

4 c. mashed berries (I put mine in the blender and pureed them)
2 3/4 c. sugar
1 box Sure-Jell fruit pectin

Combine pectin with 1/4 c. sugar; add pectin mixture to smashed fruit and stir well. Set aside for 30 minutes stirring frequently. Gradually stir in the rest of the sugar until dissolved; pour jam into freezer containers and cover tightly with lids. Let stand at room temperature overnight, then store in the freezer.
Eat it on toast, bread, waffles, pancakes, french toast....or just by the spoonful, its that good!

Happy Cooking~

  1. Strawberry freezer jam is a staple in this house. For my youngest sister's wedding we actually made a ton and gave it as a table favor. I have a childhood memory of making freezer jam for days one summer when my cousins and I picked 500 lbs. of strawberries. Good stuff!

    I almost never eat peanut butter and JELLY sandwiches...it's always peanut butter and strawberry freezer jam.
