What's in it

Ingredients

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 or small Tupperware containers.

How to cook it

Directions

  • 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}.
  • 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 or tupperware containers. {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.
