Strawberry Freezer Jam

This is by far the family's favorite jam.

We start with a big clump of frozen strawberries. I think these are from the July trip to Florida, but it could've been an earlier trip.

Mash 'em up and measure out 4 cups. I only had about a cup left over. I'll probably mix with the leftover crushed peaches and make jam out of that as well.

Add 4 cups (!) sugar.

Heat the pectin with water, boil, add to berries, and stir until all your sugar dissolves. Ladle into jars.

They set for 24 hours at room temperature, then into the freezer. At least until the karate kid eats it all up!

I've never made any jelly or jam, but this doesn't look too hard. Maybe I'll try it out next year. :)
