Strawberry Freezer Jam

I first tasted this at my friend Andrea's house. When I found out how easy it was to make, I started making it all the time . It is on the package of sure-jell pectin. My kids don't want to eat store bought now jam now.

Strawberry Freezer Jam

2 cups crushed strawberries (I puree mine in blender or food processor because we don't like chunks)

If you like chunks use your food processor or blender on pulse to finely chop the strawberries.

4 cups sugar

1 box sure jell pectin

3/4 cup water

1. Prepare fruit as desired in blender or food processor

2. Measure exact amounts of fruit into large bowl

3. Add exact amount of sugar into berries. Mix well and let stand 10 minutes.

4. Stir one box pectin and 3/4 c water in small saucepan. Bring to a boil on high heat, stirring constantly. Remove from heat.

5. Stir pectin mixture into fruit mixture. Stir constantly until sugar is completely dissolved and no longer grainy, about 3 minutes.

6. Pour into prepared containers leaving 1/2 in. space at top for expansion during freezing.

7. Let stand at room temperature 24 hours until set.
