This is incredibly easy to make with the benefits of being sugar free too. We have quite a few family members including ourselves that have to watch their sugar intakes so this sugar free freezer jam is a great option.

Now, I happen to use only Stevia in our house but Splenda or any other brand can be used as well.
This recipe can be used with other fruits. Peaches have a few added steps if you choose to make jam with them.

Here is a website for the conversions of how many jars you would like to make. In case you want to do less that is.

I hope that you will enjoy this very easy recipe and the light and fresh tasting Strawberry Freezer Jam.

P.S. - It is important that you follow the measurements exactly or else your jam may not set up properly. It will still taste good but not gel.

How to Make Sugar Free Strawberry Freezer Jam

Step-by-Step

  1. Have at least 2 pints of fresh strawberries. Take them out of packaging and lay them flat. Pick out the bad strawberries and then let them breath till you are ready to use them.
  2. Wash off strawberries in cool water and then place on a paper towel covered tray. Hull the strawberries and then slice them into a bowl. Now mash them with a potato masher for a few minutes until desired consistency. (I have read that some people choose to chop them in a food processor, but we like ours a little more chunky).
  3. Add your pectin and sugar to a bowl and stir together.
  4. Now, measure out your 4 cups of strawberries. I prefer to use a measuring cup that can measure 4 cups as to be more precise. Place them in into the bowl with the pectin and sugar. Stir for 3 minutes.
  5. Ladle jam into clean freezer jars and let stand 30 minutes. (If any jam gets on the sides of the jars, clean them off before placing into the freezer.) Now, you can place them into freezer or enjoy a jar of strawberry freezer jam now.

    When filling jars, leave about 1/2 inch headspace to allow for food expansion during freezing.
  6. -----Info from instant pectin bottle: Do not exceed 6 jars per batch - set may not occur in larger batch sizes.-----

    Here is your finished jam. Freeze up to a year or refrigerate now for up to 3 weeks.

American cheese on a burger is classic. Grilled cheese achieves its optimal gooeyness when American cheese is added. It may not be the fanciest of cheeses (technically it’s pasteurized process American cheese), but many many terrific dishes are made with American cheese.
