Strawberry Freezer Jam
I’m linking up with Alli-N-Son for sweet tooth friday
I think I have said before that I am new-ish to making jellies and jams. I’ve made pickled items before, but not many sweet things.
I had the opportunity to host a canning party through House Party. I was sent a huge box of canning items, a few jars, coupons and recipe books.
We made strawberry freezer jam. Freezer jam is pretty darn easy. It’s a no-cook jam. It’s more like a chunky fruit spread, but that’s fine by us.
Freezer Jam…adapted via my new canning cook book.
The canning cookbook had a few freezer jams, but none that were just strawberry.
I adapted a strawberry banana jam recipe.
What you need:
6 cups of mushed, smashed, crushed strawberries
1 1/2 cups of sugar
5 TBSP of Ball instant Pectin (It is a Ball cookbook, for a Ball Canning party) Product placement intended I’m sure.
- mix the sugar and Pectin together
- add sugar mixture to the strawberries
- stir constantly for 3 minutes
- Fill freezer jars (I used the Ball brand plastic jars)
- place the lid on the jars
- Let the jam “set” for 30 minutes on the counter top
- label and freeze for up to one year OR
- gobble it up now, pour it on ice cream, roll around in it, have toast for every meal with gobs and gobs of jelly.
- OR…(what I did) place 2 in the freezer and 1 in the fridge. They will “keep” in the fridge for 3 weeks (yeah, like they will last that long).
