For over a year I have been interested in learning how to can! I've read bunches of books and watched plenty of Youtube videos!
I found this video about making Freezer Jam. It seemed pretty easy to me!
I purchased two packages of 8oz. jar. Each package has five jars. Love the purple lids!
Here is the pectin that I used. It is especially for making freezer jam.
Three containers of starwberries
Crushing them with a potato masher was especially fun!
All three containers of berries mushed up!
Sugar and Pectin
The berries mixed in with the sugar and pectin.
Three containers of strawberries made seven 8oz. containers of jam.
Freezer jam is delicious. It was super easy to make and tastes wonderful on whole wheat toast. This is a good and safe first step into food preservation.
