I picked 24 lbs. of the yummiest berry in Oregon:

Made strawberry freezer jam, strawberry shortcake, and froze some.  I'm going back on Tuesday for more!  To make easy freezer jam, here's what you need to do:

Strawberry Freezer Jam (This isn't "my" recipe!  You can find it other places online, in pectin directions, etc.)

2 C. Berries, crushed
4 C. Sugar
3/4 C. Water
1 pkg. Sure-Jel Pectin

Stir sugar into berries, a little bit at a time. 
In saucepan, combine pectin & water.  Stir, bringing it to a boil.  Once boiling, stir for 1 minute. 
Add pectin/water to straberries and stir until well-combined.
Immediately pour into containers.  Let jam set for 24 hours, then freeze.

By the way, the recipes warn against cutting the sugar, so I didn't!  :)  It won't set properly.
