Strawberry Freezer Jam

Homemade freezer jam is so easy. More importantly, it tastes so much better than store bought jam. The zest in this jam really brightens the strawberries. It's great with peanut butter sandwiches, or fresh buttermilk biscuits. It also makes a fantastic ice cream sundae topping!!


2 lbs strawberries
1 package freezer pectin
zest of one large lemon
1-1/2 cups sugar


Rinse and hull strawberries.
Place in food processor and pulse until crushed.
In another bowl, whisk sugar, zest and pectin.
Add strawberries and stir for 3 minutes.
Divide among five 1-cup jars.
Let sit for thirty minutes to thicken.
Cover and refrigerate or freeze.

Here are some of my favorite freezer jams you can find on Within the Kitchen:
Strawberry Rhubarb Freezer Jam
Strawberry Vanilla Freezer jam

And my most popular jam recipe:
Raspberry Lime Freezer jam


  1. Whoa. Do you actually freeze your jars?? I'm intrigued! I thought that glass likes to explode in the freezer, no? Mmmm jam!

    1. Yes! My canning jars by Bernardin can be used in the freezer. Just make sure u leave 1/2 inch at the top for expansion. You can also by plastic jars of glass makes u nervous!
