Fresh Strawberry Freezer Jam

This post contains affiliate links. For more information, visit my disclosure page

Today I was able to get a good deal on some strawberries, so thought I would make up some freezer jam. Doesn’t that sound good? It’s super easy. No messy canning equipment. I freeze it in small jars. This way I have less waste. You can use different berries for this recipe like raspberries or blackberries.

You’ll need:

2 Pints ripe strawberries hulled

2 cups sucanat/sugar

3/4 cup water

1.75 oz package powdered pectin

I  saw this fantastic method of hulling strawberries on a blopg recently. I’m sorry I can’t remember where 🙁 I would LOVE to give you credit.  Whoever you are this absolutely brilliant. It worked like a charm. So simple, all you do is take a straw and insert it at the tip of the strawberry. Push it through until the core and leaves pop out the other end. It’s freaking brilliant! Update: Found the brillent person who blogged about hulling strawberries. Practically Functional. Thanks Jessi!
Place the strawberries n a large bowl.

Using a potato masher, mash the strawberries.

Stir in sucanat/sugar.

Let stand until juicy about 10 minutes.

In a small sauce pan combine water and pectin.

Bring to a boil. Boil and stir for one minute over medium heat.
Slowly pour into the strawberry mixture. Stir for a few minutes to get rid of the lumps.

Spoon jam into sterilized container(s) of choice. I’m using small 8 oz  jars. I also have this great collapsible funnel for filling the jars when canning. I love this thing. It makes it less messy.
 Wipe rims clean and place lid on top.

 Let stand for up to 24 hours before freezing.

Recipe should yields about 40 ounces of fresh jam. 6 – 8 oz jars.

The jam should keep in the refrigerator for 3 weeks, or 3 months in the freezer. I keep it even longer in the freezer without any problem.

    I love this idea of freezer jam. Years ago I made jams but didn’t know about the freezer:( Great tip with the straw:) I have to try that the next time I buy strawberries.
    I have done something to your email and keep getting my messages back:( Oh, My computer skills always cause me problems (but I am getting better). Could you email me so I can get it straighten out.

    Oh it does look wonderful and I know from past experience it wouldn’t last the 3 weeks in the fridge or 3 months in the freezer. I haven’t made this in a couple of years but strawberries had not been that great here the last few years — and they HAVE been very pricey. Maybe next year. Thanks for sharing.
