The Easiest Strawberry Jam Recipe EVER
I made freezer jam for the first time back in 2015 and ever since then I’ve been hooked. I love it because it’s easier to make (no cooking is involved) than traditional jam, it uses less sugar and it tastes just like fresh strawberries. The only downside I can think of is that you can’t really give it as a gift since it needs to remain frozen.
Normally I pick around 9+ quarts of strawberries each year to freeze and make into jam, but with our move I didn’t get a chance this year. I didn’t want to miss out on all the fun so I decided to use store-bought instead.
I made a small batch of freezer jam which took less than an hour from start to finish. This is the perfect beginner recipe for jam because it’s so fast and easy. Give it a try and I know you’ll be hooked just like me. Also, be sure to check out the recipe links below for fresh, homemade biscuits and bread to spread your delicious jam onto when you are done.
