Easy Strawberry Freezer Jam

Strawberry-Freezer-JamIf you read my post on us picking about 100 pounds of strawberries you know that we picked lots of strawberries, one of our big goals for them was to make strawberry freezer jam hopefully enough of it to last for the next year.

Serena and Hailey (the neighbor girl) hulled all of the strawberries for me which was the most time consuming part for us, thank God for their help I cannot imagine what my hands would have felt like after 2 hours of hulling all of our strawberries!

In the end we had 15 quarts and 4 pints of strawberry freezer jam, which will hopefully be enough to last us for a year. We used about 5 full flats of strawberries to make the jam.

I will say that this jam is a little more on the thinner side, if you want a thick jam you would be best looking for another recipe. This is the recipe that is most loved in our house and the one we will continue to make every year.
