Strawberry Freezer Jam

Strawberry Freezer Jam

I am not going to put the whole recipe here because there are different recipes on each of the pectin boxes. 

I just want to say that anyone can make freezer jam! 

Get yourself some strawberries.  Go to the store and get a box of pectin. Depending on the kind you buy, there may be a slight variation in the ingredients. 

It is so easy to make and you will thank yourself later when the strawberries (or whatever fruit you choose to make jam with) are out of season.

The main things you'll need to make it: berries, sugar, pectin, lemon juice, some recipes call for light corn syrup, a potato masher, and some plastic containers to put the jam in the freezer.  Here are a couple of photos of our most recent freezer jam extravaganza. You can even have the kids help.  Do not skimp on the sugar or it won't turn out right!

Strawberry freezer jam is not only great on toast but you can add it to your morning yogurt, put some in your smoothies, put a little on your brownies, or just eat it right off the spoon.  

You cannot mess up this recipe. I promise.

Strawberry freezer jam is a great gift to give only those you love the most.
