Strawberry Freezer Jam

Every year I try to make two batches of strawberry freezer jam. It has been two years since the last time I made it and my poor family about gagged when I brought home store bought jam...there is a HUGE difference! This stuff is SO GOOD, it is about 1/3 of the cost, and it just takes about an hour to make. Give it a try and you will never go back to the store to buy jam again! One year I made about 3 batches, froze them, then gave them as neighbor Christmas gifts with a tag that said "Have a Berry Merry Christmas!" One less thing to worry about during the busy season, and a different, fresh treat.

Strawberry Freezer Jam
recipe from MCP Fruit Pectin
  • 3 1/4 cups crushed strawberries (about 3/4 big carton from Costco)
  •  1/4 cup lemon juice
  • 1 box of MCP Fruit Pectin
  • 4 1/2 cups sugar
  • 1 cup light corn syrup
  • about 8 (1 cup) freezer jam containers
Wash strawberries and remove stems.

Crush strawberries using a potato masher...don't puree - it should be a little chunky.

Combine 3 1/4 cups crushed fruit and lemon juice. Gradually stir pectin into the fruit. Mix thoroughly. Set aside 30 minutes, stirring every 5 minutes to dissolve pectin.

Pour 1 cup corn syrup into the fruit mixture. Mix well. Stir in sugar gradually. Stir constantly until sugar is completely dissolved and no longer grainy. Pour into clean containers, leaving 1/2 inch space at the top for expansion.

Let stand at room temperature 24 hours until set. Refrigerate up to 3 weeks or store in freezer for up to 1 year (if it lasts that long).
