The EASIEST Strawberry Freezer Jam Recipe
This is the easiest strawberry freezer jam recipe! No cooking, just stirring! Strawberry jam in under 30 minutes. Strawberries, sugar and instant pectin. Double or triple the recipe to make up to 6 (8 oz.) jars at a time.
Servings 2 Cups
Mix Strawberries with Sugar and Pectin
Mix sugar and pectin together in a bowl. Pour strawberries over sugar and pectin.
Stir for 3-5 minutes. This may seem excessive, but is essential to make sure that the sugar is evenly distributed and reacting with the strawberry juice. You don't want gritty jam.
Pour into clean, sterile, containers. Add lids.
Let sit on the counter for 1 hour. Store in the freezer for up to a year and in the refrigerator up to 4 weeks.
I used glass jars for my jam because I have an entire cupboard full of them. Plastic containers are great for freezer use as well. You do not need to use canning lids (the kind with a ring and top) since you will not be processing these in a canner. Simple screw on lids are easier to open and close anyway!
Because it is made from fresh fruit, and not cooked, the jam will not last as long in the refrigerator as cooked jam. We have a large family (7) so a 16 oz. jar will go pretty quickly. If you have a smaller family it is best to make 4 or 8 oz. jars. To thaw a frozen jar simply place the jar in the refrigerator for 24 hours.
