Fruit Freezer Jam

Difficulty *

Ingredients
- 4 cups of crushed strawberries (exactly 4 cups)
- 3 cups of sugar (exact amount)
- 1 packet of Sure Jell (less sugar needed) Premium Fruit Pectin
- 1 cup of water
- Freezer jam containers (1-2 cup size) with tight fitting lids, washed and dried


Utilizing other forms of Pectin will change the end result. If Sure Jell is not available, utilize powdered pectin over jelly pectin. Use any type of fruit.

Add 3 cups of sugar, 1 cup of water and one packet of pectin to a saucepan. Bring mixture to a boil on medium high heat, stirring constantly. Boil and stir for 1 minute. Quickly stir crushed strawberries into the hot sugar mixture, turning off the heat. Stir until thoroughly mixed. Pour into clean containers, leaving 1/2 inch space at the top for expansion during freezing; Cover. Let stand at room temperature for 24 hours until set. Refrigerate up to 3 weeks. Otherwise, store in the freezer for up to 1 year.
