Strawberry Freezer Jam

Strawberry freezer jam is so easy to make, really economical and AMAZINGLY delicious.  It is easier than traditional jams because you don’t actually cook the fruit.  However, since it isn’t “preserved” in the traditional sense it is important that you have enough freezer room to store the jam you make.  On Monday I made 36 jars of the stuff!  12 jars went into our freezer and 24 are being store in our chest freezer.  They can be stored in the freezer for up to a year. When you are ready to eat it you can keep it in the fridge for about three weeks.

Here is what you will need to make 6 – 1/2 pint jars

1 Quart ripe strawberries
4 Cups of Sugar
1 Package Sure-jell fruit pectin
3/4 Cup of water

Remove the green caps from the berries and place the berries into a large bowl.  Using a potato masher, crush the berries.  Add the sugar and stir.  Allow this mixture to sit about 20 minutes.  In the meantime you can wash and dry 6 – 1/2 pint canning jars and lids.  In a small sauce pan combine Sure-Jell pectin and 3/4 cup of water.  Stirring constantly bring to a boil and allow to boil for 1 additional minute. Add the pectin mixture to the fruit mixture and stir well.  Pour fruit into jars, cap and let sit on the counter to set about 24 hours.  You jam is now ready to freeze.  I place 12 jars back into the box they came in and freeze them in the box.  This way I don’t have jars rolling out onto my toes and I have a place to store the empty jars when I am done so I can reuse them next year!

I had to purchase jars, berries, pectin and sugar to make my jam.  In the end each jar of jam came out to a cost of about $1.55.  Next year if I reuse the jars the cost will be even less.
