The Happy Crazy House

remodeling and other family adventures

During our busy weekend at the first of the month, we made some freezer jam. Through Bountiful Baskets, I ended up with 8 pounds of strawberries.  YUM

My 8 lbs of strawberries ended up being roughly 16 cups of chopped strawberries:

  • Let boil for 15 minutes.
  • Then use a potato masher or an immersion blender to break up the chunks.
  • Add sugar to taste.  My family does not like traditional sweet jam/jelly, so I sweeten conservatively….maybe 1 1/2 cups went in.
  • Regular fruit pectin.  I followed the directions based on the amount of strawberries and used 7/8 cup~ Along with about 2 cups water.  Boil for a minute and then add to the strawberries.

  • Stir, stir, stir.
  • Ladle into your freezer safe containers.

Then you are done.  Enjoy!  So yummy.  This is my second go around with this recipe and the whole family loves it.
