Monday Morning in the Kitchen: Strawberry Freezer Jam


Why don't I make freezer jam more often?  It is quick, easy, and I prefer the fresh-fruit flavor to canned varieties.

I used the recipe from the Sure-Jell site found here.

Strawberry Freezer Jam

Combine 2 c. mashed fresh strawberries with 4 c. sugar.  Let sit for 10 minutes, stirring occasionally. 

Combine 1 package pectin and 3/4 c. water.  Stirring constantly, bring to a boil and boil for 1 minute.

Add pectin mixture to strawberry mixture.  Stir for three minutes.  Put jam in freezer containers, making sure to leave 1/2 inch headspace for expansion.  Leave covered containers out on counter for 24 hours to set, then freeze. 
Thanks for easy, yummy projects.
