Strawberries are in abundance right now…you should give this a try and you don’t have to know how to can either. That’s why it’s called freezer jam, you stick it in the freezer instead of canning. I made two batches last year. I kept some for myself and gave the rest to neighbors. Your neighbors will thank you. 🙂 This recipes makes about eight 10-ounce jars.
3 lbs. strawberries
1 cup apple juice
1/2 c. water
1 package No Sugar Needed Pectin
1 T lemon juice
1 c. honey
Clean and stem berries. Mash berries in a bowl. You can use the back of a large spoon or a potato masher.
In a small saucepan, whisk together apple juice, water and pectin. Bring to a hard boil and boil for one minute.
Add lemon juice and honey to berries and stir well. Add in hot pectin mixture and stir well to make sure everything is combined.
Ladle into clean jars and screw on lids. Put them in the refrigerator for a few hours to set up and then transfer to freezer to store.
After opening one, make sure to eat it within a week.
