Strawberry Freezer Jam

Strawberries are so inexpensive right now, so why not make some jam so you can enjoy them all winter?

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.

I found the adorable labels here if you want to give jam as gifts to your friends or neighbors :)

  1. Thanks for the labels, they are darling! Now I need to make Jam just for the cute labels.
    I sell stamp sets with a strawberry on it and designer paper too with strawberries. Check out my blog on Tuesdays post!
