When you accidentally come home with 17 pounds of strawberries from a morning at the pick your own berry patch, you have to do something. And you have to do it fast! I started to can the strawberry jam, but quickly saw that if I continued on the canning path to use up all the strawberries that I'd be up all night. While I did can many jars of strawberry jam, I needed a "quicker" alternative to help us get through all the strawberries. This No Sugar Freezer Jam was the answer!

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 3 lbs strawberries, hulled and stems removed
  • 1 34 cups apple juice
  • 1.5 (3 ounce) packagesno sugar pectin (I find that using 1 1/2 packages really gets the jam to set perfectly!) or 1.5 (3 ounce) packageslow sugar pectin (I find that using 1 1/2 packages really gets the jam to set perfectly!)

Directions

  1. Mash the strawberries in a large bowl.
  2. In a small saucepan, bring the apple juice and pectin to a boil and boil for 1 minute.
  3. Pour straight into the mashed strawberries and stir hard for 1 minute.
  4. Ladle into the freezer containers and place in the refrigerator overnight to let it cool slowly and set.
  5. Then store in the freezer.
  6. Good in the freezer for up to 1 year, in the fridge for 3 weeks.
