With only a few minutes prep time, you can make delicious jam made with frozen strawberries. Check the jam pectin envelope for more information on canning using frozen fruits.

How to Make It

Step 1

Place frozen strawberries in refrigerator 4 hours or until partially thawed. (Some ice crystals should be visible.)

Step 2

Pulse strawberries in a food processor 8 to 12 times or until slightly chunky, stopping to scrape down sides. Place mixture in a medium bowl; stir in sugar, and let stand 15 minutes.

Step 3

Gradually stir in pectin. Stir for 3 minutes, and let stand 30 minutes.

Step 4

Spoon fruit mixture into 1-cup plastic freezer jars, filling to fill line (about 3/4 inch from top); wipe jar rims clean. Twist on lids, and place in refrigerator or freezer.

Step 5

Note: For testing purposes only, we used Ball Freezer Jars.

I hate when people make changes and then review a recipe however I wanted to review this one, given this was the only one I found online using frozen berries.I used 4C frozen organic berries, 2 1/4C sugar, zested and juiced 1 lemon (adding water to juice to make 3/4 C) and 1 pkg Sure Jell Pectin. (followed instructions in sure jell packet)I would only use the potato masher to break down the berries; mine got a little over done in the food processor the first go around.I was concerned re: texture given the cell structure had already been broken down from freezing the first time, however the jam really does come out nicely.  With less fruit the 2nd time, it had a better jammy consistency but was still a little on the runny side.  Tastes delish though!
