Cook time: 
Total time: 
Serves: 8 (1 cup)
 
Ingredients
  • 5 cups prepared fruit (about 2 quarts fully ripe strawberries)
  • 1 box SURE-JELL Fruit Pectin
  • ½ tsp. butter or margarine (optional)
  • 7 cups sugar, measured into separate bowl
Instructions
  1. Remove stems and crush strawberries thoroughly, one layer at a time. Measure exactly 5 cups prepared fruit into 6- or 8-quart saucepot.
  2. Stir pectin into prepared fruit in saucepot. Add butter to reduce foaming, if desired. Bring mixture to full rolling boil (a boil that doesn't stop bubbling when stirred) on high heat, stirring constantly. Stir in sugar. Return to full rolling boil and boil exactly 1 minute, stirring constantly. Remove from heat. Skim off any foam with metal spoon.
  3. Allow to cool for 24 hrs. Place in freezer.

  1. I’ve made the no-cook strawberry freezer jam for years and it’s wonderful! This year there is a new (at least to me) dry pectin that you just mix with the sugar. Tried it, and it’s ever bit as good – and you don’t go anywhere near a stove! My now 30 y/o son STILL starts bugging me about making it the first sign of spring!
