No- Cook Strawberry Freezer Jam.


My Aunt Nancy always made Strawberry Freezer Jam. She would go out to the U-Pick It strawberry fields in southern Wisconsin and load up on fresh strawberries. For years she has overnighted me two jars a year. I make sure those jars last the whole year. Fond memories everytime I get ready to have toast and jam. Oh, and don't forget to use real butter! Absloutely heavenly!

4 c. ripe strawberries
4 c. granulated sugar
1 box Sure-Jell powdered pectin
3/4 c. water

Wash and hull the berries; crush them completely, a few at a time. (Should end up with 2 cups.) In large bowl, mix together the berries and sugar. Let stand 10 minutes.

Combine pectin and water in saucepan. Bring to boil; boil 1 minute, stirring constantly. Stir hot pectin into the fruit bowl; continue stirring.

Don't worry if sugar is not completely dissolved. Ladle jam into freezer containers. Put lids on immediately.

Let stand at room temperature 24 hours or until set. Refrigerate for a few weeks or freeze for up to a year.

Thanks for the hints. Just thought I would add a few more to the list. Walmart has freezer jars and freezer jam pectin from Barr. SO to do a full recipe was 5 dollars not including the fruit.
Also i found, in the freezer section, a variety of fruit pulp. Its a latin brand of food so you might find it with similiar product lines. Taste great and no sugar added so no increase in calories.

SO.. THanks again and happy canning
