Freezer Jam

Have you tried making freezer jam yet? It's really not hard at all, and you don't need any special equipment (you do for the jam you store on your shelves, but not for this kind).

Here's a list of things you'll need if you want to make it:

strawberries (about 3 baskets)
lemon juice
corn syrup (karo brand)
fruit pectin (sold in baking aisle)
jars to put it in

The directions are in the fruit pectin, so you don't even need a recipe. It took me about 1 1/2 hours to make 2 batches, which is about 10 jars.

And if you live in this area, I don't think you can find better strawberries than at the Farmers Market off of Alipaz in San Juan Capistrano. Be warned, it is a bit on the pricey side...but so worth it.
