Freezer Jam

It is strawberry season over here. And that means starwberry jam. Or freezer jam.

Step 1: Go to your local farm and pick strawberries.

Step 2: Revel in the freshness of sweet new strawberries that you picked yourself.

Step 3: Wash and mash the strawberries.

Step 4: Gently pulse the strawberrries until you have two cups. Mix two cups of mashed pureed strawberries with 4 cups of sugar. Let stand for 10 minutes.

Step 5: Get a box of Sure-Jell.

Step 6: Mix the Sure-Jell with 3/4 cup water in a sauce pan until it boils. When its ready mix the Sure-Jell with the strawberries and sugar. Mix it really well.

Step 7: Pour it into glass jars or tupperware. Leave room at the top for expansion. Let sit for 24 hours on your counter. Put 1 in the fridge for immiediate use and put the rest in the freezer. Or give some away.

Step 8: Enjoy
