Looking for an extra-easy Jam Recipe that’s absolutely delicious?  Well, I’ve got just the thing!

Stock your freezer with yummy jam, and give some as gifts!

What You’ll Need:

  • Four 1-lb. containers of Fresh Strawberries or Six 6-oz. containers of Fresh Raspberries {you can even use berries grown in your yard to save $$!}
  • 1.5 cups of Sugar
  • 1 Pkg. Ball Freezer Jam Pectin {can be found at most grocery stores or Wal-Mart}
  • Freezer-safe Canning Jars

What You’ll Do:

  • Wash, stem & slice berries {I chose strawberries}, then place in a shallow pan.
  • Use masher to crush berries {consistency will depend on how chunky you like your jam}.
  • The berries will look something like this, after they’ve been mashed…
  • In separate bowl, mix together Pectin and Sugar.
  • Add mashed berries into mixture, and stir for 3 minutes.
  • Scoop jam into small freezer-safe jars. {I use the 4oz. – 8oz. size.}
  • Let  jam set for 30 minutes, then store in your freezer until you’re ready to use your tasty jam. Enjoy!
  • I make 12 little jars at a time {as pictured}, and I take out one at a time to keep in the fridge.
  • Store in freezer for up to 1 year, or in refrigerator for up to 1 month.
  • Recipe makes approximately six 8 oz. jars or twelve 4 oz. jars.
