Strawberry Freezer Jam

Strawberry Freezer Jam

I used to make this all the time when the kids were little and then just fell out of the habit so this year after much begging from the family I decided to give it a go again.  I forgot how easy it is to make!  Plus a grocery store near me had strawberries on sale for $7 a flat which is about 8 pounds of strawberries.

3 1/4 cups crushed strawberries (I run mine through the food processor)

1/4 cup lemon juice

4 1/2 cups sugar

1 box MCP Premium Fruit Pectin by Sure Jell

1  Mix strawberries and lemon juice together in a large bowl.

2  Stir in box of pectin and mix thoroughly.  Set aside and stir every 5 minutes for 30 minutes to dissolve pectin completely.

3  After the 30 minutes, stir in sugar gradually.  Keep stirring until sugar is dissolved and no longer grainy.

4  Pour into containers and cover.  Let stand at room temperature for 24 hours or until set.

Can be kept in fridge for 3 weeks or freezer for 1 year.

 

I bought 2 flats of strawberries, about 16 pounds and ended up with this
