Berry Delicious Freezer Jam

As I wandered around Tractor Supply recently I found the canning aisle. Now I would love to can my own homegrown veggies for us to eat all year, but A.) I'm lazy B.) I don't have the equipment and C.) It's too stinkin' hard not to just eat them! We don't have enough yet really in any case. But that doesn't stop me from looking!!
Anyhoo, I have been wanting to make some freezer jam and I even bought some frozen mixed berries for that purpose. So I got some fancy plastic canning jars and a package of freezer jam pectin. Then I got down to business.
The Ingredients:
4 cups crushed fruit
1 1/2 cups sugar
1 package Mrs Wares Freezer Jam Pectin

Allow frozen fruit to thaw and then crush using a potato masher.

I didn't have quite 4 cups from my frozen berries so I added in some fresh strawberries.

Add the sugar and pectin.

Mix well and continue to stir for 3 minutes.

Pour into prepared jars and allow to set for 30 minutes.

What you will use right away, put into the fridge. It will last about 3 weeks. Put the rest in the freezer and it will keep for about a year. This jam is very tasty! It tastes like cobbler filling to me. I have used it in sandwiches and on toast. Next time I think I will make peach but according to the package of pectin, peach jam has a different direction set which you can find here.

  1. I went strawberry picking last week with my friend and our kids. It was fun. I made freezer jam like this for the first time. It was so delicious! I have 15 containers like that in my freezer. ;) The one I saved out is almost gone already. I think next year I'll make at least that many. That's the good thing about picking 4 qt. buckets filled with strawberries, lots of things to use them for.


Tell me what you think
