Kati's Rasp/Strawberry Freezer Jam
Strawberries were .88 cents the other day at our grocery store. Actually they were .88 cents for about a week. I had to take advantage of them being so so cheap. I made some yummy freezer jam. Here is my Sister Kati's delicious Strawberry Freezer jam recipe:
Depending on how much your making is how much of the pectin you'll need but I usually only buy one box of it. It is called sure jell fruit pectin. If you make strawberry you'll need 2 cups of crushed strawberries and 4 cups of sugar. Mix the fruit and sugar well and let stand for 10 minutes. Stir occasionally. Stir 1 box of pectin and 3/4 cup of water in a saucepan. Bring to a boil on high heat, stirring constantly. Boil for 1 minute, stirring constantly. Remove from heat. Stir pectin mixture into fruit mixture. Stir constantly until sugar is completely dissolved and no longer grainy, about 3 minutes. Pour into containers leaving 1/2 inch of space at the top for expansion during freezing. Let stand at room temperature for 24 hours until set. Refrigerate up to 3 weeks, otherwise store in freezer. Thaw in the refrigerator.
If your doing raspberry you'll do the same thing but you'll need 3 cups of crushed raspberries and 5 1/4 cups of sugar
