Strawberry Freezer Jam

I love strawberries and in the summer I like to go pick them when I can.  I usually end up with more than I can eat before they start getting overly ripe. I found this for freezer jam on the Ball jar box and have been enjoying it all winter. I have also used this recipe with frozen strawberries that I have thawed, when they aren't in season.  I like to put strawberries in my yogurt and in desserts, so I pureed some to freeze and made freezer jam out of the rest. 
For the Jam you will need:
  • 4 Cups crushed strawberries
  • 1 1/2 C sugar, I used about 2/3/ c (or to taste) of Agave instead of the sugar
  • 5 T Instant Pectin
Makes 5 (8 oz) jars

Stir sugar and Instant Pectin in a bowl. Add strawberries. Stir 3 minutes. Ladle into clean jars. (I like the plastic Ball jars, but the glass jars can be used as long as they are freezer safe). Let stand until thickened, about 30 minutes.  Serve, refrigerate or freeze.  Can be frozen up to 1 year.
