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!

  • 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.
