The Creative Princess: Easy Strawberry Freezer Jam Recipe - Plus a GIVEAWAY!

Easy Strawberry Freezer Jam Recipe - Plus a GIVEAWAY!

 My absolute favorite flavor of jelly, jam and/or spread is Strawberry. Yeah, I sometimes get a craving for grape or peach but, I always go back to strawberry. Growing up, my granny, mom and aunts made all sorts of jelly/jam. Mostly blackberry since we had tons of blackberry bushes but, I do remember them making strawberry and peach freezer jam every now and then.

I have NEVER canned before so I knew making a freezer jam would be a great place to start my jelly/jam making adventure. Since you don't have to actually can this jam it makes it super easy for beginners.

A few weeks ago I headed over to my Aunt Brenda's house and she taught me how to make our Mamie's Strawberry Freezer Jam. I could not get over how easy it was!

Strawberry Freezer Jam
Makes 5 8oz Jars
2 Cups Hulled Strawberries - Crushed
4 Cups Sugar
1 Box Surgel (pectin)
3/4 Cup Water
Fresh Fruit (or fruit fresh) optional

Directions
In a large bowl, combine strawberries and sugar. Allow to sit for 10 minutes.
While waiting for strawberries, combine water and Surgel in a medium pot. Bring to a boil, stirring constantly. Allow to boil for 3 minutes, continuing to stir. Pour Surgel mixture into strawberry mixture and stir for 3 minutes.
Pour jam into sanitized jars, leaving 1/2 inch space at the top.
Screw lids on jars and allow to sit at room temperature for 24 hours.
After 24 hours, place in freezer until ready to use. Store in freezer at least 24 hours (or overnight if you can't wait) before using.
Refrigerate after opening.

 Now, how would like a chance to win everything you need to make your own Strawberry Freezer Jam? 

Winner will receive 1 box of 6 8oz Glass Jars, Strawberry Recipe Cards and a $20 Walmart Gift Card to purchase remaining ingredients/items needed.
