1/2 Photos of Strawberry Freezer Jam
Mimi in Maine's Note:
Freezer jam is the very best because the berries are not cooked. It tastes like fresh fruit. Strawberry jam in my husbands favorite.
My Private Note
Units: US | Metric
- 1Wash and rinse containers (make sure they are sterile).
- 2Prepare the berries crushing one cup at a time using a potato masher.

- 4Measure the exact amount of sugar (no sugar substitutes) and stir into the prepared fruit; mix well and let stand for 10 minutes stirring occasionally.

- 6After the 10 minutes has gone by with the berries, stir the pectin mixture into the prepared fruit.
- 7Stir constantly until sugar is completely dissolved and no longer grainy--about 4 minutes (a few sugar crystals may remain--it's O.K.).
- 8Pour into prepared containers, leaving a 1/2" space at the top for expansion during the freezing; cover.
