How To Make Strawberry-Raspberry Freezer Jam: Fresh Strawberries

How To Make Strawberry-Raspberry Freezer Jam is as easy as 1, 2, 3! I promise you, once you go “homemade” you’ll never go back to store-bought jams, jellies or preserves! As my Granny says, “It’s so good, you can slap the teeth outta a mule.” Silly Granny, but she is right! It’s excellent!

You can make jam, jellies, and preserves out of ANYTHING!!! Strawberries, blackberries, watermelon, yes, I said watermelon, and much, much more! I know back in my Granny’s day; you didn’t waste anything! They were poor folks that worked hard and had to scrape by with what they had available. The Freezer Jam recipe was one of their favorite treats!

How To Make Strawberry-Raspberry Freezer Jam: Ingredients

1 1/2 packages of Sure-Jell

How To Make Strawberry-Raspberry Freezer Jam: Cooking and Canning Process

Use your dry measuring cup to measure the exact amount of prepared fruits. Place fruit in large bowl. This is the fun part: squish your fruit together. Don’t have it pulverized but where the jam still has chunks in it.

Measure 3 1/2 cups of sugar into the large saucepan. Add you Sure Jell to the sugar and mix well. Add a cup of water and add your saucepan to medium heat on the stove. Bring contents to a boil while stirring constantly. Remove pan from stove.

Add your fruit mixture and stir until everything is well blended.

Fill all mason jars IMMEDIATELY! Pour directly into your mason jars, leaving about 1/2 inch space at the top of the jars to allow expansion during freezing; seal with lids.

Let your jam stand at room temperature for at least 24 hours or until they set. They will refrigerate up to 3 to 4 weeks or freeze up to a year. If frozen, remember you’ll have to thaw them out before you use!

Note: You can use your jam on pancakes and waffles for breakfast instead of syrup! They are wonderful!

      If the first batch doesn’t come out “just right” you’ll have syrup! 🙂 Mine turned out that way when I first started making jams, jellies, and preserves.

      It is easy plus you can use any fruit that you want! I want to try out muscadines. I love they way they smell, and I think they would be a great jam. (I know the wine is out of this world!) 🙂

    Home-made jams are always yummy. I like strawberry jams but adding raspberry with it, hmm, sounds yummy. This is a nice recipe.

    A little natural jam is always great for PB and J! Our boys love when we make homemade jelly. This is definitely on our to-do list.
