Summer in a jar! This easy-method of canning is a great afternoon activity after a morning of strawberry picking for kids and makes a welcome gift at holiday time. -E
Strawberry Freezer Jam
3 1/4 cups crushed berries (can use strawberry or raspberry)
1/4 cup lemon juice
2 oz + 3/4 t. powdered pectin
1 cup light corn syrup, such as Karo
4 1/2 cups sugar
1. Mix crushed berries and lemon juice together and add pectin. Stir until well blended and let sit for 30 minutes, stirring the mixture one or two turns every 5-10 minutes during this time.
2. Add corn syrup and sugar. Stir and watch as jam will begin to set. You may need to let the mixture sit for a while to ensure all the sugar dissolves.
3. Pack into twelve (12) sterilized half pint jars, making sure that there is enough headspace (3/4″) for expansion. Freeze until ready to open, keep refrigerated.
