Freezer Strawberry Jam

2 Cups washed, crushed strawberries
(start with about 1 quart whole berries)
¾ Cup water
4 Cups sugar 1 Box powdered fruit pectin (1 3/4 oz)

 

Place crushed berries into a large bowl. Add the sugar to the fruit, mix well, and let stand for 10 minutes.

Mix water and pectin in a small saucepan, bring the mixture to a boil, and boil for 1 minute, stirring constantly.

Remove from heat and stir the pectin into the fruit. Continue stirring for 3 minutes. Ladle quickly into sterilized freezable jars, leaving ½ inch of headroom. Seal immediately with sterilized tight-fitting lids.

Let jars stand at room temperature until the jam is set. Freeze. Makes 5-6 8-ounce jars.
