Strawberry Freezer Jam

Costco had a sale on strawberries ... 4 pounds for $6.49, so my friend Jessica and I made some freezer jam! This is seriously SO easy, SO fast and SO yummy - you'll never want to buy jam again because now you can make it! You can get your canning supplies almost any where but Lowes (yes the home improvement store) always has a huge selection and good prices. This recipe is on the back of the Ball No Cook Freezer Jam Fruit Pectin. The package and says it will make enough to fill five 8oz. freezer jam jars (like in the picture) however this  recipe made 5 jars + 2 small Ziploc Twist ’n Loc Containers ... so I'd buy 2 of the 5  packaged freezer jam jars for this recipe.

(5) 8oz. Freezer Jam Jars
1 ½ Cup Sugar or Splenda
1 pkg. (1.59oz.) Instant Fruit Pectin or No Cook Freezer Jam Fruit Pectin
4 pounds of fresh strawberries

1. Stir sugar and pectin in a bowl.

2. Wash and cut the stems off the strawberries. Place in a blender and puree. Then transfer to a large bowl.

3. Add sugar mixture to fruit and stir for 3 minutes.

4. Ladle jam into clean jars & let stand 30 minutes.

You can freeze for up to 1 year or refrigerate up to 3 weeks
