Freezer jam is easy, peasy to make and is delish over ice cream, pancakes or even pound cake.
Let's make some!
Strawberry Freezer Jam
4 cups crushed strawberries (2 lbs. before crushing)
1 1/2 cups sugar
1.59 oz. package Ball Instant Fruit Pectin (or 5 T if you have the 4.7 oz. jar)
5 - 8 oz. Jelly Jars (I used 10 - 4 oz. jars)
Wash and cut the stems off about 2 lbs. of strawberries.
In small batches, crush them in a bowl with a potato masher or fork until you have 4 cups of crushed berries.
Stir sugar and pectin in a bowl.
Add crushed fruit. Stir 3 minutes.
Ladle jam into clean jars and twist on lids. Leave them on the counter 30 minutes to thicken.
Refrigerate up to 3 weeks or freeze up to one year.
