It's a matter of .....Freezer Jam....

In a previous post, we learned about Clear Jel and  also how to process it in a Hot Water bath.  Some prefer the Freezer method and claim that it is easier.  I have two thoughts on this, first it is easy, and secondly you need to consider how much room you have in your Freezer.  If you are trying to store enough for your family to use in a year, this could significantly impact what you can store.  However, if you would like a sweet indulgence with some in your freezer and some in the jar....go right ahead!

Here is a tried and true recipe that can be used with Strawberries, Raspberries, or Blackberries.

3 cups Sugar

1 pkg. Strawberry Kool-Aid

3 tbsp. Clear Jel

½ cup Light Karo Syrup

5 cups Fruit (uncrushed)

Mix well. Put into containers and freeze. Use flavors of Kool-Aid that compliment the fruit used.

Here's a tip!  Heat your fruit to dissolve your sugar then add Clear Gel, let it set 5 minutes, then pour into your jars. Freeze. It is that easy!!!!  (

Try it!
