Strawberry Freezer Jam
I had to reblog this, before this I had never heard of freezer jam. I miss the freshness of fruit that is lost in the cooking process, here is the answer to that. Thank you Dyanna!!
This is my favorite freezer Jam recipes it can be applied to any fruit with a few adjustments. It makes 4 half-pint jars of jam. This one is made with strawberries. I have successfully used it with peaches, raspberries and cherries. The fruit spread/jam can also be used as a topping on ice cream.
