NO COOK STRAWBERRY FREEZER JAM
I just love strawberries, and every yummy and delicious thing you can make with them! I discovered this last year, it is so easy, yet sooooooo good. You can also use other fruits like peaches, blackberries, pears, or plums. This recipe is also on the back of the fruit pectin packet, but I wanted to post the recipe so you can see for yourself just how easy this really is. This jam is great on biscuits, ice cream, french toast, pancakes, or just dip your spoon in and eat it!
Strawberry Freezer Jam:
4 cups crushed fruit
1 pkg BALL No Cook Freezer Jam Fruit Pectin
1 1/2 cups sugar or SPLENDA (granular)
5 BALL Plastic (8oz) Freezer Jars
1. Stir sugar and contents of package in a bowl until well blended.
2. Stir in crushed fruit. Stir 3 minutes longer.
3. Ladle into cclean jars to fill line. Twist on lids. Let stand until thickened, about 30 minutes.
**NOTE: If you use peaches, you have to add 3 tbs. of lemon juice to the sugar, pectin, and peaches mixture, and let stand for 10 minutes. If you want your peach jam to be a little thicker, put your crushed peaches in a saucepan, and bring to a boil before adding to the other ingredients.
