Easy Strawberry Freezer Jam

 

 

 

June and strawberries just go together in my mind. I've made strawberry shortcake this week and even had a strawberry shortcake waffle for breakfast. So, with strawberries on my mind, I decided to make some strawberry jam using my tried and true, easy recipe. I have made yummy peach jam, using fresh peaches and even blueberry jam using frozen blueberries. Any kind of homemade jam is like a little bit of summer sunshine on your morning toast or english muffin.

 

 

This recipe is great because I can use Splenda, and make this jam low carb. When it was cooking, the scent of strawberries filled my kitchen, as this easy jam came together, in just minutes. No pectin, no boiling jars required. The recipe requires two freezer jars and I fill one to use right away and one to freeze for later.

 

Easy Freezer Strawberry Jam


2 quarts fresh strawberries

1 1/2 cups sugar (or Splenda for baking)

2 T fresh lemon juice

Splash of water


Cut tops from strawberries and slice in half. Place in large pot with sugar (Splenda), lemon juice and splash of water. Bring to boil and cook for 40 minutes until liquid reduces and strawberries are soft. Scoop carefully, with slotted spoon, into 2 freezer jars. Liquid will set, once jam cools. Enjoy!
