Strawberry Freezer Jam (Using Ball RealFruit Instant Pectin)

Strawberry Freezer Jam
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.

I was looking online for a freezer jam recipe and chose yours. The jam was so easy and delicious- I don't think I'll ever buy jam from the store again. I picked your recipe because of how concise the page is, how you emphasized local and fresh produce, and the nice looking photos. I'll visit again to make your other recipes which look wonderful. Thank you so much. L.O.
