Strawberry Freezer Jam

Strawberry Freezer Jam

4 cups fresh strawberries
1 1/2 cups sugar
1 package {1.59oz } freezer jam fruit pectin

Stir sugar and pectin together in a bowl
Add 4 cups crushed strawberries. I put mine in the food processor and pulse them. That way it is still chunky and a lot faster than trying to hand mash. 
Pour jam into clean jars to fill line. Let sit 30 minutes until thick. 
This fills about five 8oz. jars. 

I like this recipe because it doesn't call for as much sugar as some of the others we have tried. 
Also you don't have to cook it so it is easy and fast. You can refrigerate it right away, for up to 3 weeks. Or freeze up to 1 year.
