Homemade No-Cook Strawberry Freezer Jam

Submitted by: KARICHELLE

Introduction

This could not be easier! Even using real sugar, it comes out with less calories than the artificially sweetened jellies and jams at the grocery store. This could not be easier!

Ingredients

    1 packet Ball No Cook Freezer Jam Fruit Pectin or Instant Fruit Pectin
    1 1/2 cups granulated sugar
    4 cups crushed fresh strawberries

Directions

Wash and hull strawberries, then gently crush with a potato masher in a 9x13 baking dish.

In a dry, large mixing bowl, stir together packet of pectin and sugar until well blended. Stir in crushed strawberries. Stir for 3 minutes more. Ladle or spoon into 8 oz freezer-safe jars, leaving 1/2-3/4" headspace. Let stand at room temperature for 30 minutes or until thickened. Refrigerate for up to 3 weeks or freeze for up to 1 year.

The package says you get 5 8-oz jars but I got 6 out of it. The serving size I used was 1 tbsp of finished jam.

    I make a simple cooked jam by cooking and mashing the berries...then adding the sweetener. I make just what I think I will need for the next few weeks. It is good on ice cream too..but don't do that too often :) - 7/6/10
