Ball's Strawberry Freezer Jam




Have you ever wondered how to make freezer jam? Well, you won't have to anymore because I have come to your rescue! Starwberries are dirt cheap right now, so I thought I would take advantage of the sales and whip up a batch of freezer jam. And you get to benefit from my newfound knowledge!

Here's what you will need:

- Four pounds of strawberries, rinsed

- One package of Ball's Freezer Jam No Cook Pectin

- Sugar

- 4 cup glass bowl

- Large bowl

- Sharp Knife

-Strawberry Huller

- Mixing Spoon

-Potato masher

-4-5 Freezer jars

- 1/2 cup measuring cup

-Timer

-Ladle


First things first, wash out all your jars and set them out to dry


Hull and slice your strawberries into small, bite size pieces You don't need to have blurry vision for this :-) Put them in your four cup measuring bowl.





Once all your strawberries are cut up, use the potato masher to smush the strawberries into a nice consistency. The key here is personal taste. If you like your jelly with chunks, don't mush too much. I smushed mine until there were no large pieces left.


Add one and a half cups of sugar to the large bowl. Try not to be disgusted by the amount of sugar that this recipe calls for. :-)


Add the pectin to the sugar, then stir it all together.



Add the berries to the sugary pectin, being careful not to splash red berry juice on yourself.


Set timer for three minutes, stir berries, sugar and pectin together until timer goes off.



Carefully ladle the berry mixture into your clean jars up to the fill line, or fill to about 1/3 inch from the top of the jar. Once again, be careful of splashage.


Screw lids on securely, then label jars with contents and date. I used regular old masking tape, but you can get fancy, if you feel so inclined.


Set your timer for 30 mintues, and go relax and read a magazine or something. You've earned it!


When the timer goes off, put the jars in the freezer.


Voila! You have just made strawberry freezer jam!
