Strawberry Freezer Jam

ACTIVE TIME: 20 minutes
TOTAL TIME: 50 minutes
Yield: 5 (8-ounce) containers
This super simple no-cook strawberry freezer jam is the perfect way to enjoy fresh the flavor of fresh strawberries all year long.
I love fresh fruit. The problem is, each mouthwatering morsel is only at its prime for a few months of the year. The solution? Jam.
Is it time-consuming? Sure, what with all the prep, sterilizing jars and equipment, hours of stirring...I kinda dig that. But if you don't, I suggest you make freezer jam, which is just as delicious as shelf-stable jams but requires roughly 1/15th of the work and is best suited to small batches. This just might be the world's easiest jam recipe.
Here's how I do it.
