Now, I know most of you make this all the time yourself BUT this is the first time I made it ALL BY MYSELF. So I guess you are stuck watching me do it :)
4 C. smashed up Strawberrys
3 C. Sugar (healthy right?)
1 pkg. of Sure Jell
1 C. of WaterYou know what I really love about this, the recipe comes right in the Sure Jell pkg. You never need to hunt around for your own copy or call someone to get it, you have it, plus lots of other recipes. You will want to follow the direction to make FREEZER JAM. It's the best! Just like House of Flavors up in Ludington!
You can use frozen or fresh...I used both! It look just a little over 2 bags of frozen strawberries so I added in a few fresh ones. It is such a good time to make it too, strawberries are $1.23 a pkg at Walmart right now or, if you have a $.75 off Dole Frozen Fruit coupon, you can get a bag of frozen for $1.58.
I will tell you, the frozen (after thawed) were WAY easier to mash up!
On the stove you are going to first add the pkg of sure jell to your 3 C. of sugar. Mix them together, then add 1 C. of water and bring it up to a boil (stirring constantly). Let boil for one minute, while stirring and then remove from heat.
Then add your 4 C. smashed strawberries to the hot mixtures. Stir one minute until everything is combine.
Then pour Jam into your containers, cover and let sit 24 hours on your counter and then store in the freezer!
Mmmm, smells like summer!
