My fam loves strawberry freezer jam, and I love this new method to make it- I use Ball Instant Pectin and it calls for WAY less sugar than Sure-Jell, which I can't even buy here anyway. (I buy mine from Amazon, but I saw it at WalMart in the States last summer.) It's so easy too; you don't even have to cook the pectin like other recipes. Just stir together sugar and pectin, add crushed fruit, and stir for three minutes. I love it!
To make this jam, we used delicious, fresh, local strawberries from the Farmer's Market mentioned in this post. The berries alone were delicious. And of course, we had to get doughnuts as big as our heads again.
