This strawberry jam will stay good in the freezer for up to 6 months. When you’re ready to use it, just take it out of the freezer and let it thaw to room temperature, which will take 1-2 hours depending on how roasty-toasty you keep your place in the wintertime. Once you’ve opened it, cover and store in your fridge for up to 3 weeks.

Ingredients:

  • 1 pint fresh strawberries, washed and drained with hulls removed
  • 2 1/2 C fresh pineapple, peeled and finely chopped
  • 7 C sugar
  • 2 packages (1 3/4 oz.) powdered pectin
  • 1 C cold water
  • 4 pint-sized freezer containers with lids

Directions:

Place strawberries in a large mixing bowl. Crush the strawberries with a potato masher. Measure out 2 1/2 C strawberries and place in a separate bowl. Add the pineapple to the strawberries. Slowly add the sugar and stir until well combined.

Place the cold water in a saucepan over medium heat. Add the pectin. Stir continuously until water begins to boil. Boil 1 minute. Remove from heat. Pour the water mixture into with the fruit. Stir well to combine. Continue stirring 4 minutes. Pour into the freezer containers and cover. Let stand at room temperature for 24 hours. Freeze after 24 hours.
