Strawberry Freezer Jam

In this week's Bountiful Basket, we were able to buy 2 flats of strawberries.  So Brent and I made Strawberry Freezer Jam.  

 Brent wouldn't pose for me, so I wasn't able to get a good picture of him making jam.  He is a good jam maker.
Freezer jam is very easy to make.  And the taste is so good!  Since the jam is not cooked, it has a flavor that is more like fresh strawberries.  

We made 23 freezer bags of Strawberry jam, enough to share with our kids.  Maybe I will need to make some homemade bread to go with.  Oh how yummy they would be together!  


  1. I never thought of putting the jam in freezer bags. Perfect idea. I love freezer jams. love your background too.

  2. Karen, I hope they work this way alright. I don't know why it wouldn't. I couldn't afford the little plastic freezer containers made for freezer jam, and I thought little jars would take up too much space. So we are trying the bags. As we use them, I will thaw the bag and put it in a jar to use in my fridge. I think it will work. I think I remember a family member using bags for freezer jam before.
