I Love Love this recipe for freezer Jam the 30 min ball pectin in this recipe is so great my family loves it made Raspberry and Strawberry Jam. Going to make blueberry as soon as the blueberry is in season. For those trying to figure out how to convert from the ounces to cups for the pectin I measured out the last package I had and it is a 1/3 Cup pectin. I could not get the package anymore had to get the tub container that says make 15 batches but had one last package so I measured it out. The rest of the batches I made came out just like the first ones I had made... Hope that helps other as far as the measurements go for the pectin..
This is the most amazing, easiest way to make brilliantly colored, fresh tasting jam in minutes. I have slaved over kettles of boiling fruit and sugar only to have hit and miss results...testing jam for doneness on freezer cold plates! This jam sits for thirty minutes in an unsterilized jar and then goes into the freezer. What could be simpler. I'm a convert to Ball's Simple Creations No Cook Freezer Jam Pectin.
I just started making jams for the first time this past spring. I love this recipe in the fact that it doesn't use as much sugar as the normal pectin recipes included in the box require. A great alternative and so easy/peasy. I made peach BTW:-) Made as a recipenap for Veg-n-Swap~
Found the Ball Freezer Jam packet myself.I used sugar for the first batch, will try Splenda for the next one. I love this produce, it takes a lots less sweetener.
Wonderful! I have always used the cooked variety of the freezer jam. But this recipe not only lessens the work, but also decreases the amount of sugar used by 2 1/2 cups and still tastes great! Thanks so much WI Cheesehead!
