Strawberry Freezer Jam

By apanda

If you have an abundance of strawberries and love jam this recipe is a great option for a lower carb freezer jam that is simple to make and can be enjoyed all year round.

Strawberry Freezer Jam
  • Approx. 36 oz. Strawberries

  • 1 (1.75 oz.) Box Sure Jell Lower Sugar Fruit Pectin (In pink box)

  • 1 1/2 Cups Sugar

  • 1 1/2 Cups Splenda Granular

  • 1 Cup Water

  • 7 (8 oz.) Jelly Jars

  1. Use a potato masher and crush the strawberries. The jam should have some pieces of fruit in it, so don't puree. You should end up with 4 cups of crushed strawberries. Measure the sugar and Splenda into a small saucepan. Stir in Sure Jell until thoroughly mixed. Stir in 1 cup water. Bring mixture to a boil on medium-high heat, stirring constantly. Boil and stir 1 minute, then remove from heat. Stir hot pectin mixture into the fruit mixture. Stir 1 minute or until thoroughly mixed. Pour into jelly jars leaving at least 1/2 an inch space at the top for expansion during freezing; cover loosely with lids. Let stand at room temperature for 24 hours until set. Tighten lids and refrigerate for up to 3 weeks. Otherwise, store in freezer for up to 1 year. Thaw in refrigerator. Once you open the jars, stir the jam to make sure the fruit is mixed up well. Sometimes the pieces of fruit float to the top of the jar. You can have up to 1/4 cup for 1 point. This is good on ice cream, toast, oatmeal or anything else you can think of.

  2. Makes: 7 (8 oz. each) Jars. Serving size = 1/4 Cup

I found a different pectin called Mrs. Wages that only uses 1-1/2 cups of sugar for 4 cups of berries and it's delicious. Perhaps not so sweet but I used it for raspberries and strawberries. I really like it.

Great recipe! I know this recipe, but had never heard of the low sugar version.
