Strawberry freezer jam is thoroughly delish and now that I know how to make it, I never buy regular jam at the store. It’s so simple to make and since the berries aren’t cooked, like regular jam, the flavor is fresh and sweet.
Right now is prime strawberry jam making time because the farmer’s markets are overflowing with red, ripe strawberries. Last year, I made 25 jars of this sweet goodness. That was enough to last our family for the year and I had plenty to share.
Try your farmer’s markets for good deals on local berries. The stand down the street from my house sells “yesterday’s berries” for 1/2 price. They’re a little soft which makes them perfect for jam.
Check out my post from last year that gives you the step-by-step instructions for making Strawberry Freezer Jam using either Ball or Sure-Jell pectin. They’re very different, so it was an interesting experiment. I also give you my all-time favorite freezer jam recipe.
Now get jamming!
