Let's Jam! {Strawberry Style}

On a recent visit to my Aunt's house (BTW she's an amazing baker)- she shared with me some of her Homemade Strawberry Jam. Then she told me it was EASY! Now that I'm back home and we recently purchased some beyond delish strawberries, I just had to try it.  Oh, and I ran out of my fave Crofter's Organic Strawberry AM essential.

Available at most Whole Foods & Wegman's
My Aunt recommended the less sugar version of pectin- which these strawberries were already naturally sweet, so it made sense.

What you need to make "Freezer Jam"
  • Gobs of Ripe Strawberries
  • Freezer Safe Jars (washed & dried)
  • A Box of Pectin (instructions inside)
  • 3 Cups of Sugar
This jam is referred to as freezer jam because it isn't made in the traditional canning way- these jars of sweetness are perishable and thus have to be stored in your freezer not your pantry. When ready to use you take one out of the freezer and into the fridge- it will keep for about 3 weeks ((if it lasts that long!)) Click Here for the recipe I used.

This jam is vibrant and sweet with an abundance of fresh fruit flavor. Enjoy!
