If you’re looking for a simple way to turn fresh berries into tasty jam, try this recipe for Easy Freezer Jam!

What You’ll Need:

  • 4 lbs. of Fresh Berries {use berries grown in your yard to save $$!}
  • 1.5 cups of Sugar
  • 1 Pkg. Ball Freezer Jam Pectin {can be found at most Wal-Marts}
  • Freezer-safe canning jars or small tupperware containers.

The Recipe:

  • Wash, stem & slice berries {I chose strawberries}, then place in a shallow pan.
  • Use masher to crush berries {consistency will depend on how chunky you like your jam}.

  • This is what the strawberries look like after they’ve been mashed…

  • In separate bowl, mix together pectin and sugar.
  • Add mashed strawberries into mixture and stir for 3 minutes.

  • Scoop jam into small freezer-safe jars or tupperwarecontainers. {I prefer to use the 4oz. – 8oz. size.}
  • Let the jam set for 30 minutes, then store in your freezer until you’re ready to use your tasty jam. Enjoy!
  • Store in freezer for up to 1 year, or in refrigerator for up to 1 month.
  • Recipe makes approximately six 8 oz. jars or twelve 4 oz. jars.
