I love strawberry jam. I remember growing up and my grandmother would make fresh strawberry jam and we would eat it on waffles, pancakes, toast, sandwiches and even ice cream! I love strawberry everything but when you make fresh from the garden or farm market jam – there is nothing better! Here is a simple recipe for making freezer jam in no time at all! Enjoy!

What You Need:

  • 1 pt boxes of fresh strawberries, washed, drained and hulls removed
  • 2 1/2 C of fresh pineapple, peeled and finely chopped
  • 7 C sugar
  • 2 pkgs (1 3/4 oz) powdered pectin
  • 1 C cold water
  • 4 pt freezer containers with lids

How to Make It:

  • Place strawberries in a large mixing bowl.
  • Crush the strawberries with a potato masher.
  • Measure out 2 1/2 C strawberries and place in a separate bowl.
  • Add the pineapple to the strawberries.
  • Slowly add the sugar and stir until well combined.
  • Place the cold water in a saucepan over medium heat.
  • Add the pectin.
  • Stir continuously until water begins to boil.
  • Boil 1 minute.
  • Remove from heat.
  • Pour the water mixture into with the fruit.
  • Stir well to combine.
  • Continue stirring 4 minutes.
  • Pour into the pt freezer containers and cover.
  • Let stand at room temperature for 24 hours.
