My Freezer Strawberry Jam!!

My Freezer Strawberry Jam!!

4 c. ripe strawberries
4 c. granulated sugar
1 box Sure-Jell powdered pectin
3/4 c. water

First wash and hull the berries; crush them completely, a few at a time,sometimes i use a fork or a potatoe masher! (Should end up with about 2 cups.)

In large bowl, mix together the berries and sugar. Let stand 10 minutes.

Next combine pectin and water in saucepan. Bring to boil and boil 1 minute, stirring constantly.

Stir the hot pectin into the fruit bowl and continue stirring. Don't worry if the sugar is'nt completely dissolved.

Now ladle the jam into freezer containers, could be plastic containers or small jars. I buy my plastic containers at walmart for a good price. Put lids on immediately.

Let stand at room temperature for about 24 hours or until set, jiggle it to tell.

Next you can either refrigerate it for a few weeks or freeze for up to a year.

*now make a loaf of bread!!!
