Strawberry Freezer Jam
2 pounds of strawberries (about 4 pints)
3 cups sugar
1 cup water
1 box (1.75 ounces) Sure Jell Less or no sugar recipes fruit pectin
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 with a blender.
Add 3 cups sugar with the Sure Jell Less in a saucepan. Stir to mix well. Add one cup of water. Heat to boiling, stirring constantly. Boil and stir 1 minute. Remove from heat and quickly add strawberries and juice. Stir well to mix.
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. This makes about 3 to 4 pint jars.
