STRAWBERRY FREEZER JAM
1-1/2 pounds strawberries, washed and stemmed
5 cups sugar
1 box fruit pectin
1 cup water
|In a large bowl, mash strawberries coarsely with a potato masher. (You should have about
3 cups.) With a wooden spoon, thoroughly stir sugar into mashed berries and set aside for 20 minutes.
In a small saucepan, mix together fruit pectin and water. Cook over medium-high heat, stirring, until mixture comes
to a boil. Continue cooking for 1 minute; then remove from heat.
Immediately pour pectin into strawberries and stir well to combine. Let sit for 4 minutes, stirring every 15 seconds
or so, until mixture has thickened.
Pour into clean glass jars (or any freezer container), leaving at least 1-inch of space at the top. Cover and let
set at room temperature for 12 to 24 hours.
Freeze jam for up to 6 months, or refrigerate for up to 3 weeks.
Makes 7 cups.
