Bauman’s Quick & Easy Freezer Jam Using MCP Pectin

  1. Wash and rinse your containers, make sure they have tight fitting lids. 1-2 Cup sized containers are best. 1 batch will make 7-1/2 pint size containers.
  2. Prepare your berries – 3 pints per batch, remove stems, wash and drain in a colander. Crush berries with a potato masher. Measure exactly 3 1/4 cup crushed strawberries into a bowl and add 1/4 cup fresh lemon juice.
  3. Gradually add 1 box of MCP pectin into fruit. Mix thoroughly and let sit 30 min, stirring every 5 min to dissolve pectin completely.
  4. Measure exactly 4 1/2 sugar into separate bowl.
  5. Stir in sugar gradually until completely dissolved.
  6. Pour into prepared containers – leaving 1/2” head space for expansion during freezing.
  7. Let stand until set. Refrigerate up to 3 months. Can store in freezer from 1 to 2 years!
