Freezer Jams

Is anyone familiar with this way of making jam? I am very interested in trying it but need to know a bit more about the process.

Thanks for your help!!

The important thing on any freezer jam, jelly or such is to use the specified type of pectin in the recipe you are using, substituting one kind for another will not work. The recipes have been designed around exactly what is called for as for as the pectin. I have several recipes if you are interested, just let me know.

They are much easier I think than fooling aroundwith the canning process and taste wonderful!

I made a large batch of fresh strawberry freezer jam with great results. I found that the Ball brand of pectin worked the best.
I also made fresh blueberry this year for a change. Just follow the instructions for freezer jam, they list all the different ways to put fruit up on the insert. It is easy, just cleaning the berries is the messy work!
Good luck and enjoy

I have never heard of this!! I'd LOVE some recipes!! My FIL makes grape jam every year.. I have helped him, and the canning process is horrrendous! I can't IMAGINE doing that to MY tiny kitchen!!

There just isn't enough room on the stove for the pots for the jam and the jars..

Making freezer jams are so easy and have a really fresh fruit flavor. I am sending you my favorite link for making jams, both cooked and freezer .
Hope you like it. There are tons of recipes!
http://web.kraftfoods.com/main.aspx?...L+Fruit+Pectin

Basically, you just mash your fruit, add some sugar, and add some commercial pectin that is heated with some water to dissolve on the stove. Stir together, put into containers. Most sit at room temp. for 24 hours, then go into the freezer.
A few call for white corn syrup, it depends upon brands of pectin. I like Sure jell. There are low sugar versions,too.
