Strawberry Jam: You’re Doing It Wrong

If you’re buying a jar of jam at the store, you’ve already messed up. Traditional jam recipes can seem intimidating (two words: jar lifters), but with this genius method you can make flavorful strawberry jam in three steps and just 30 minutes. And that’s why I LOVE freezer jam.

Here are the basics:

Step 1: Wash the jars and fruit, then crush the strawberries (another way to use your potato masher!). Add sugar and let it stand for about 10 minutes.


Step 2: Mix the water and pectin in a saucepan and bring to a boil, stirring constantly. Continue boiling for one minute, then add the strawberry mixture.


Step 3: Fill jars and let stand at room temperature for 24 hours.

    This straw berry jam looks scrumptious. I’m not really allowed to go to Sonic anymore because my wife is worried about color additives. Oh well. She’s not really that controlling! Just on food. But these are perfect for the kids after school snack and my get-out-of work snack.
