strawberry jam.

Over the weekend, my mom and I made some strawberry freezer jam. It's delicious and super easy to make.

Here's the recipe we used (basically):
  • 2 pints (apprx.) strawberries, washed, hulled and crushed
  • 4 cups sugar
  • 1 box Sure-Jell Fruit Pectin for Homemade Jams and Jellies
  • 3/4 cup water
  • washed and rinsed containers to hold 5 cups of jam 
You just crush the strawberries, then stir in the sugar. In a small saucepan combine pectin and water. Turn burner on high to bring to a boil stirring constantly. Continue stirring for 1 minute. Stir the pectin into the strawberries and continue stirring for about 3 minutes or until the sugar is completely dissolved. Pour the mixture into the jars leaving a little room for expansion, put on the lids, and leave at room temperature for about 24 hours. Then put them in the freezer, and that's it!
