jam on

in the past three weeks, i've made 20 pints of freezer jam. ten pints of strawberry and ten pints of raspberry. that raspberry jam is precious and i shall guard it with my life. the strawberry is just ok and i will make my kids use that first. :)

i made scones with frozen roll dough on sunday so i'd have a vehicle to get the jam into my mouth. i think it's ungainly to stand in front of the fridge and eat it with a spoon.

do you make jam? has anyone ever made peach freezer jam?

I 100% love freezer jam. Strawberry is my favorite. Razzzzberry a close second.. although I never made it..
I want to this summer. Since I don't think i can choke down another round of store bough Jar O' shit.
Could you give the break down for what I need to do? I know pectin is involoved and that is about it.

Here in michigan they have strawberry/razzzberry/and blackberry farms where you can go pick your own and as much as you want..so excited to do this and magically turn it into freezer jam.
Email me will ya?

I once made freezer strawberry jam. It was just ok. Too runny. It WAS great over french toast or angel food cake though.

I have done bottled Rasp Jam and I have had it turn out GREAT and one time turn out not great. Pretty easy though. Never done freezer Jam is it easy?
