Strawberry Freezer Jam

So quick and easy. I don't even like store bought jam anymore.Strawberry Freezer Jam

From: Alana DeGooyer

2 cups strawberries, crushed (how much you crush them depends on how chunky or smooth you like your jam)
4 cups sugar
3/4 cup water
1 box surejell fruit pectin

Stem and crush strawberries thoroughly. (I typically use my potato masher or blender depending how crushed I want them.) Measure 2 cups crushed fruit into a large bowl. Stir in sugar. Let stand 10 minutes, stirring occasionally.

Mix water and pectin in a small saucepan. Bring to a boil on high heat, stirring constantly. Boil and stir 1 minute. Add to fruit mixture, stir for 3 minutes or until the sugar is dissolved and no longer grainy. Fill all containers immediately to within 1/2" from the top. Wipe edges of containers clean and cover with lids. Let stand at room temperature for 24 hours. Jam is now ready to eat or freeze.
