Strawberry Freezer Jam

Serves: 112 (1 tablespoon) servings
This makes about 7 cups of jam so you'll need 4 16-ounce jars or 7-8 8-ounce jars. I recommend using the 8 ounce jar since it lasts for only 3-4 weeks once opened and in the fridge.
  • 3¼ cups strawberries, mashed
  • 1 box Sure Jell fruit pectin
  • ¼ cup lemon juice
  • 1 cup Karo syrup
  • 4½ cups sugar
  1. Mash berries with a potato masher (it will still have some texture so use a blender if you want it completely smooth) and place 3¼ cups in a large pot.
  2. Sprinkle some of the pectin over the mashed berries, stir, sprinkle again... repeat until all of the pectin is mixed in.
  3. Set the timer for 30 minutes and allow the the berries and pectin to sit. Give it a stir about every 10 minutes.
  4. Mix in the lemon juice and Karo syrup and then the sugar 1 cup at a time.
  5. Cook the jam over medium heat (shouldn't get hotter than baby's milk) until the sugar is completely dissolved (this takes about 5 minutes).
  6. Pour jam into clean jars or small Tupperware containers. Place in the refrigerator or freezer.*
*This jam lasts for 3-4 weeks in the fridge or 1 year in the freezer.
