Ever since my neighbor's mom came to visit her last summer when she had her baby and made us Strawberry freezer jam, I've been obsessed. I just realized that over the last month, I have eaten about two pounds of assorted berries a week. Man, I love summer. And with strawberries at 77 cents at Sunflower Market this next week, you better believe I am going to try my hand at as many recipes as necessary to perfect my most favorite summertime treat in the world. This will be the first one I try...any suggestions??
Strawberry Freezer Jam
Makes Five - 8 oz. Jars
4 cups mashed strawberries
1 1/2 cups sugar
1 packet freezer jam pectin
1. In a large bowl, crush st until only small pieces remain and mixture is quite liquid. This may take a few minutes.
2. In a small bowl, mix Pectin and sugar together until incorporated. Add to mashed strawberries. Stir for 3 minutes.
3. Ladle into clean jam jars, leaving 1/2″ space at the top. Cap and let sit for 30 minutes. Store in your freezer until ready to use, or transfer to fridge and eat!
