Strawberry Freezer Jam-Pectin Free

Submitted by: STRYNYTE

Introduction

I was looking for a way to use up some strawberries I had bought in bulk before they went bad. I found tons of recipes for freezer jam but I had no pectin. I came across a similar recipe, but it called for way too much sugar!! So I improvised!! And I must say this turned out pretty well..This recipe makes a jam that is more the consistency of a fruit spread. If you want you can also mash the berries or put the mixture in a food processor to "spread" out the strawberries a little more! Enjoy!

  • Amazing. Only had 3 c strawberries, so used 1 c sugar, which seemed plenty -- more *might* have been too much -- then 1 tbsp lemon juice (just b/c I ran out, but would've preferred more juice).
    Was wondering about mixing it w/ Mock Strawberry Jam, but didn't know if it would all freeze? - 8/19/13

  • This recipe is great, however if you add 4 cups of berries with 2 cups sugar there is no way you will get 3 pint jars (each pint is 2 cups.) I used 10 c of berries, 5C sugar, and 5T lemon juice. I reduced it by half to thicken. I got a yield of eight - 8 oz jars. (4 pint jars) - 6/15/13

  • I used Blackberries instead of Strawberries. It came out pretty good. Not as thick as I would like. - 8/30/10
