|Local fresh juicy sweet Strawberries!|
Yesterday was "Strawberry Freezer Jam" day! The Certo, sugar & 1 cup Freezer containers had already been purchased. A little mass production was going on in my kitchen to prep those 3 batches of Freezer Jam. Henry Ford would have been impressed! Today those 3 batches of jam will be placed on the top shelf of our large freezer - each batch at a different time.
***At a different time, because for best results, each batch is prepared separately.
The cleaned utensils, containers & strawberries were ready! The directions for Freezer Jam is located in the Certo package. I also read over my own helpful hints (click here) before starting.
Now, I usually make 2 batches of this variety of jam, but this spring, suddenly there were none left of any variety. Commercially prepared jam/ preserves/ jellies are o.k. I'd much rather spend the time during the summer making jam when our local fresh fruits are ripe & prepare my own that tastes so yummy! It is so much more tasty than just o.k.
The Strawberry Freezer Jam is now sitting on our dining room table "doing its thing" for 24 hours. After the 24 hour time period, the containers will be placed in the freezer. (The foil covered custard cup of jam will find a home in our fridge.) The last batch will be placed in our freezer at 4:30 PM.
