Strawberry Freezer Jam
1 quart ripe strawberries (about 4 cups)
3 cups sugar
3⁄4 cup water
1 box (1.75 ounces) low sugar fruit pectin (like Sure Jell)
Make sure strawberries are at room temperature and washed and dried. Mash strawberries with a potato masher or in food processor until slightly chunky. Do not puree! Mix exactly 2 cups of crushed strawberries and the sugar in large bowl. Let stand at room temperature 10 minutes, stirring occasionally.
Mix water and pectin in a saucepan. Heat to boiling, stirring constantly. Boil and stir 1 minute. Pour hot pectin mixture over strawberry mixture and stir constantly 3 minutes.
Immediately spoon mixture into clean and dried jars or freezer containers, leaving 1/2-inch headspace. Seal containers. Let stand at room temperature about 24 hours or until set.
Store in freezer up to 6 months or in refrigerator up to 3 weeks. Thaw frozen jam and stir before serving.
