If you’ve ever wanted to make jam, freezer jam is the easiest method, and this recipe for making strawberry jam, or strawberry mango jam if you are feeling adventurous is fabulous. It uses a low sugar recipe, too, which is always nice.
You Will Need...
- 4 cups prepared fruit
- 1 cup of water
- 1 box SURE-JELL Premium Fruit Pectin (make sure you buy the pink box. This is important)
- 3 cups sugar
Step 1: GATHER four pint jars and make sure they are washed and dried.
Step 2: PREPARE fruit. You need 4 cups total of crushed fruit. I blend my washed/prepared fruit in the blender since I don’t like “chunks” in my jam. Set aside.
Step 3: POUR sugar (3 cups) into saucepot. Add package of pectin and 1 cup of water. Bring mixture to a boil over medium-high heat, stirring constantly. Don’t walk away! Once it’s reached a boil, set a timer and boil for 1 minute. Remove from heat.
Step 4: POUR fruit mixture (4 cups) into the hot sugar-pectin mixture and stir for 1 minute.
