I started to sympathize with myself by assuming that you need to have certain genes to be able to make jam. And unfortunately, I have not got that gene. My bad! Do you fall into the same category? If so let me share with you my secret easy to make freezer jam that I found recently while searching for recipes. Now with this, you can have your ever desired jam right in front of you in your home. I’ll be giving you links for all the types of jam that you can make in the bottom section, but now I will be pedantic about strawberry no-cook freezer jam.
No-cook jam or a freezer jam is different from other jams because it does not require canning. They are made from fruits, sugar, pectin, and lemon juice. After being made, they are stored in a tight container and are left in the refrigerator for a long period of time. They are very easy to prepare because-
The use of pectin helps to gel the fruits without cooking.
Fresh fruits: Make sure that you use fresh and ripen fruits. Do not use fruits that are sour tasting. They will make your jam sour.
Sugar: Use at least 4 cups of sugar. I know this sounds like a huge dosage but it is JAM, and jam is all about 70% sugar.
Beaker, tight containers: Stay prepared with clean and dry containers that are airtight. They will be used to store the jam.
Lemon juice: Prepare lemon extracts from good and fresh lemons.
Pectin: Get some soluble pectin from the nearby store. This will eliminate the tedious and tiring process of cooking and heating.
After getting all the ingredients prepared, start and follow the steps given below-
Now you are all set to have your mouthwatering jam after a few weeks.
