Ok, if you are afraid of canning, but love homemade jam – then you NEED to make freezer jam. It is the easiest thing to make and your family and friends will be so impressed. I’m all about ‘faking fancy’, this is definitely one of those recipes.
Strawberry Freezer Jam
2 cups crushed strawberries
2 tbsp. fresh lemon juice
4 cups of sugar
1 pouch of CERTO Sure-Jell Liquid Fruit Pectin
Crush fruit in a large bowl using a potato masher. Measure the exact amount of fruit. Add sugar, mix and then allow to sit for 10 minutes.
Combine Pectin and lemon juice in a bowl. Stir pectin mixture into fruit and sugar. Stir constantly for about 3 minutes or until sugar is dissolved.
Pour jam into containers, I used Ball Freezer Canning Containers. Freeze for up to a year. It will keep in the fridge for 3 weeks (but yours won’t last that long – I’d give a container a couple days at the most).
