Strawberry Freezer Jam
This Strawberry Freezer Jam far outweighs any store-bought jam, hands-down. My favorite thing to make when strawberries are in season!
Servings 40 servings
- 2 cups crushed strawberries (about 4 cups fresh strawberries before being crushed)
- 4 cups sugar
- 1.75 ounces fruit pectin (1 box or about 4 tablespoons)
- 3/4 cup water
Measure 2 cups (exactly) of crushed strawberries into a large mixing bowl.
Add 4 cups of sugar and stir well to combine. Let stand for 5-10 minutes, stirring occasionally.
In the meantime, add fruit pectin and water to a small sauce pan. Bring to a boil over medium-high heat, stirring constantly. Boil for 1 minute, stirring constantly, then remove from heat.
Add pectin mixture to strawberries and stir for 2-3 minutes or until sugar is completely dissolved.
Fill containers, leaving 1/2 inch space at the top to allow for expansion when freezing.
Cover with lids and allow to stand at room temperature for 24 hours before refrigerating or freezing.
