September 29 Freezer Jam

Because the price of strawberries is still really good and Audrey's daddy loves strawberry jam I decided to make freezer jam. It is such an easy way to enjoy homemade jam for those not comfortable with canning.

Freezer Jam

  • 1 2/3 cup crushed fruit
  • 2/3 cup sugar
  • 1 package freezer jam pectin
Mix pectin and sugar, stir in fruit. Place in containers and freeze or refrigerate. 

Audrey's Tasks:
  1. Cut fruit
  2. Mix ingredients
  3. Help pour into containers
Mom's Tasks:
  1. Gather ingredients
  2. Crush fruit
  3. Help pour into containers
This task took about 30 minutes total and now we will have jam for several weeks. I am thinking about purchasing some more fruit so we can put up jam for the entire winter. Audrey's daddy really likes his strawberry jam.

  1. Making freezer jam has been on my list. I love strawberry jam too. Is the pectin for freezer jam hard to find? I live in a pretty small town and my shopping options are limited

  2. I have no idea how hard it is to find but I purchased this package at Walmart. If you live close to a store of that type you should be in luck.
