Dan’s Garden: Freezer Jam

video preview image

Summer typically provides an abundance of fresh fruit. Preserving them can be pretty simple and only requires three ingredients! Four cups of strawberry, one and a half cups of sugar or Splenda, and pectin is all that’s needed. By mashing the strawberries, mixing these ingredients and stirring well you will find a taste of summer which can be preserved for up to 1 year! You’ll want to eat it fresh, and the jam must be stored in the fridge for a good three weeks before eating! Enjoy!

    For the freezer jam recipe you need to specify the amount and type of pectin used, as the ratio of ingredients determines how well the mixture will set. If using a whole jar or packet, I also need to know the brand.
    Thank you.
