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.
