Easy Freezer Jam Makes the Most of Summer Fruit

Easy Freezer Jam: Quick and Delicious!

Quick and simple freezer jam makes the most of your summer fruit bounty. It’s also great as a topping for ice cream, blintzes and whatever else you can think of.

I stash a few of each flavor in the freezer to enjoy a bit of summer when it’s chilly and wet outside. You can find recipes for all types of fruit on the Sure Jell website.

Raspberry Jam Ingredients:

  • 3 cups crushed berries
  • 5 1/4 cups sugar
  • 1 box Sure Jell pectin


Wash and rinse berries then crush about half (some lumpy fruit is ok.) Measure exact amount of sugar and add to the berries. Stir well and let sit for 10 minutes.

Stir one box of pectin into 3/4 cup water in a small saucepan. Bring to a boil on high heat, stirring constantly. Boil one minute, remove from heat.

Stir pectin mixture into the fruit until the sugar dissolves completely. About 3 minutes.

Pour the fruit mixture into clean containers. Let stand at room temperature for 24 hours to set. Refrigerate for up to 3 weeks. Freeze up to one year and thaw in the refrigerator.

Author’s note: this is my mom’s favorite jam and now mine too!

I’m a tech marketer by day and a wannabe cook once my laptop powers down. These days, the line between quitting time and play is pretty thin. It's why I like a little discovery in the kitchen— creativity in prep and ingredients—to take the edge off the mundane and make food and feasts fun. Because let’s face it, if it’s not fun, then somewhere, somehow, you’re doing it wrong.
