Spring is over, and summer is nearly gone. One of the fun things that we love to do as a family is go strawberry picking during spring time! This is such a great activity to do with little one, since it will show him an important lesson of where strawberries come from, and learn how to make strawberry freezer jam. The recipe that I’m going to share with you is such a fun and easy recipe to do! Sure to please your little one’s curiosity in the kitchen. Little one certainly enjoyed it!
Strawberry Freezer Jam
Makes 3 (8 oz. mason jars)
- 1 2/3 cup(s) strawberries
- 2/3 cup(s) sugar
- 2 tbs instant pectin
Instructions: Mix 2 tablespoons of instant pectin and 2/3 c. sugar. Add mashed strawberries and stir for 3 minutes. Let stand for 30 mins. Refrigerate 3 weeks, and freeze for 1 yr.
We made a total of 15 mason jars of strawberry freezer jam!
Look at these beautiful strawberries! Yummm!
I wash (more of a rinse through water) and then I hull them with a straw.
Then little helps mashing them up.
The final product! Delicious, nutritious strawberry freezer jam!
Can’t wait until next Spring! Gardening season, and strawberry picking.
