quick freezer jam

 

I love fresh homemade jam, to be honest I am not much of a canner and it actually scares me a bit.  It also seems when you are canned a lot of time is spent cooking down the recipe and then processing in finished jars.  Maybe someday I will get over this fear and really can my own jam!  For now I really love freezing recipes, especially freezer jam!  I was at the store this week and they had a flat of strawberries for $7,  I love it when I find great deals like this they were less that $1 a pound.  I am sure we could have eaten all 8 pounds but, I decided I really wanted some fresh strawberry  jam to have in the fridge and freezer.  One of my favorite things about freezer jam is it only takes a few ingredients.   I always purchase the freezer jam packets to keep it really simple.

To make your own freezer jam you will need 1 freezer jam pectin pouch, 4 pounds of fresh fruit, 1 1/2 cups of sugar.  Instructions are to wash and mash 4 pounds of fruit.   You know how I am all about simplifying things, instead of chopping and mashing all of those strawberries.  I washed them cut the tops off and threw the 4 pounds of strawberries into my blender.  I pulsed my blender a few times until the strawberries broke down into a mashed consistency.  I added the 1 1/2 cups of sugar and the pectin pouched and pulsed the blender a few more times until it all became incorporated and the sugar and pectin were dissolved.  I set out my 8 ounce plastic freezer jars and simply poured the fresh strawberry jam into them.   It only took about 15 minutes to make 2 batches of this wonderful freezer jam.  I am sure we will be eating jam everyday on anything we can find to put it on!  What is one of your favorite things to put jam on?
