Homemade Freezer Jam for Beginners

• 23 August 2011

Prior to my extensive jam making this Summer, I researched all sorts of methods, types of pectin, etc.  Today over at Zupas I am sharing a few things I learned about making a fabulous batch of freezer jam.  I invite all novices and seasoned jam makers to weigh in!

I will try this pectin. I used the usual from the store and have had mixed sucess. One I don't like that it requires so much sugar and two sometimes it sets up and others as soon as the jam starts to thaw it is watery. I know freezer jam is looser than normal jam in the set up process, but it shouldn't be liquid. I hope this product works.

Jojo, I use the recipe on the inside of the Pomona's pectin. You get to decide on the amount of sugar--3/4 cup to 2 cups per 4 cups crushed berries. It's really a matter of preference! I usually hovered around 1 cup of sugar to 4 cups of berries.

Good luck! I'd love to hear your thoughts after using it if you can get your hands on some.

My girlfriends and I are jamming it up in just a few weeks! There's an orchard full of end-of-season peaches down in Santa Cruz just calling our names.

Thank you for the timely and helpful post! And thanks so much for visiting Gourmet Style Girl :)
