When summer strawberries are plentiful in our area I make good use of them. One way is by preserving the taste of summer by making jam. I think this freezer jam is the best I have ever made! And I love that it is small batch jam. Each jar of this heavenly jam is a treasure! Let’s make the best Strawberry Freezer Jam ever!
Glorious homegrown strawberries! Each one pops with the flavor of summer!
THE BEST STRAWBERRY FREEZER JAM
- 5 cups fresh strawberries washed and hulled
- 5 TBS fresh lemon juice
- 1 TBS corn starch
- 1 1/2 cups white granulated sugar
Put strawberries in a 4 quart pot and mash then with a potato masher or fork to release their juices.
In a bowl add lemon juice and corn starch. Stir vigorously dissolve the corn starch. Add to the strawberries and stir to combine. Add sugar and stir to combine.
Put the pot on the stove and turn on the burner to medium high. Let the strawberry mixture come to a rolling boil (bubbles when stirred) for 20 -25 minutes stirring occasionally. The jam is ready when it coats the back of a spoon.
Remove the jam from the heat and allow to cool. Put in 8 oz jars and refrigerate or freeze.
Great as a little gift!
