Making Freezer Jam

Freezer Jam is a great way to use lots of ripe fruit and save it for later. It's also super easy to make and a fun activity for your child to help with as well. Many freezer jam recipes require no cooking and will keep for up to a year in the freezer. You can enjoy that fresh fruit flavor until next season (if the jam lasts that long!)

You will need:
-Ripe fruit
-Pectin (look on the pectin box for the freezer jam recipe)
-containers for freezing

*Use perfectly ripe fruit
*Make sure your containers are meant for the freezer. Plastic or special freezer safe glass jars work well.
*Use pint-size containers or less as the jam will not set up as well.
*Follow the specific freezer jam recipe on the pectin you purchase for the best results.
