Freezer Jam
Recipe type: Freezer Jam
Prep time: 
Total time: 
Serves: 6+ cups
Once you realize how easy it is to make your own jam, you'll never buy jam again!
  • 1 pack of Sure-Jell Low Sugar Pectin {the pink box}
  • Berries/Fruit *
  • Sugar*
  • *Quantities vary according to the type of fruit
  1. Reference the instructions in the Sure-Jell box for the "quick and easy freezer jam."
  2. Use the amount of berries and sugar stated for the respective fruit.
  3. Remove ½ cup sugar from the total amount and mix it with the pectin.
  4. Put the berries in a microwaveable bowl.
  5. Then, stir in the pectin-sugar mixture and let it thicken for 30 minutes, stirring it periodically.
  6. After 30 minutes add the remaining sugar, a little at a time.
  7. If the jam mixture feels gritty when you rub a little between your fingers then warm it slightly in the microwave, just until the sugar dissolves (probably less than 1 minute or so).
  8. Do not boil or cook the berries because heat alters the enzyme in the pectin.
  9. Pour the jam into glass containers and put the lids on.
  10. Let the jam rest at room temperature overnight.
  11. The next morning, refrigerate the jam you will use immediately and freeze the rest of the jars of jam.
