Easy Strawberry Freezer Jam

I love this time of year! Great weather, school is getting out, the garden is on its way to making yummy food, and strawberries are ripe for the pickin'.  Sadly I don't have enough strawberry plants to make much more that a handful of strawberries at one time so I bought mine at Wal-Mart.  Costco is also having killer deals on them,  4.99 for a giant box!!  This is a super simple recipe and so yummy!  I was able to make one batch in less time then my kids took to eat their lunch. Kids were busy and I got some jam made...Win-win!

Easy Strawberry Freezer Jam

4c. Strawberries, hulled
4c. granulated sugar
1 pk. (2oz) unflavored powdered fruit pectin
3/4c. water
2 T. lemon juice

In a bowl crush the berries, or use your food processor or blender to make a thinner jam.
Stir in the sugar and let sit for 10 minutes, stirring occasionally.  In a small saucepan combine pectin and water, bring to a boil and stir constantly for 1 minute.  Remove from the heat- pour into berry mixture and add lemon juice.  Stir for 3 minutes or until sugar is dissolved and mixture is smooth.  Ladle jam into clean jars or freezer containers, leaving 1/2in head space.  Seal and label.  Let sit @ room temperature for 24 hours or until set.  Refrigerate up to 3 weeks or freeze up to a year.

-makes about 6 half pint jars
