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.
