Freezer Jam

It was mentioned in my brief introduction that I love food.....and I really do! I love REAL foods. Whole foods. I love to make something from scratch any chance I can get. There is no better feeling than starting with a few simple ingredients, and creating something so tasty to share with your family!

Freezer jam is SO easy to make. Too many people are intimidated by it--for no reason at all! I dare you to make it this week--do it!! You will be so happy you did!
All you need is:
-Your favorite fruit
-clean jars
-food processer/blender,
-a box of pectin (I think the box I used had a total of 4 instructions....FOUR! So easy!)
-optional: small children to lick the spoon.
-lots and lots of bread for all the toast you will be eating.

Admire (and photograph) beautiful berries. Wash.

Core berries. Give them a few good pulses in the food processor. (I like bigger bits of fruit in my jam so I make sure not to puree it)

You'll follow the directions on your pectin box--some freezer jams call for cooking. Some don't. Add the fruit, sugar and pectin to your clean jars.

You did it!! Take a step back and bask in the glory of making jam from scratch. Pause for a quick photo-op, and then enjoy your toast!

Oh wow, I just made freezer jam for the first time the other day. Strawberries were on sale so I used them. I haven't tried it yet, but it looks so pretty.
