Strawberry Freezer Jam

Strawberries are in season and there have been great prices on them at the grocery stores, so I thought I would try my hand at freezer jam this year. I don't know why I have never made jam before. It is so easy. It seriously only took me a half hour to make. It is so much better than store bought.I read others tips on freezer jam and everyone was raving about Ball's Simple Creation No-cook Freezer Jam Pectin. So, that is what I used. Update: Jam has been repackaged and looks like this.
People like it because it uses less sugar than most pectin brands and you don't have to cook the jam. Here are the summarized instructions from the pectin package:

4 cups crushed strawberries
1 package Ball's Simple Creation No-cook Freezer Jam Pectin
1 1/2 cups sugar

That's it! Pretty easy. Pour the jam in your freezer containers and let the jam set for about a half hour before placing in the freezer. This is how much jam the recipe makes:


  1. I make this jam and we love is so easy with the no cook pectin. Also, wanted to let you know that we make your greek grilled chicken and salad and it was soooooo yum! Now a fave...thanks for the recipe!

  2. I have been wanting to make jam for about 2 years, but haven't wanted had a chance since it's so time consuming. This sounds really fast & easy. Thanks for sharing!! :)

  3. We made is yesterday and we loved it!

  4. Allyson W gave me some jam and told me about your site. It is great! I bought all the ingredients and I am making strawberry jam tomorrow. Thanks for making it so easy.
