My favorite Freezer Jam

Sheryl McGlochlin - Thursday, September 15, 2011

 

FREEZER JAM


Enjoy making and eating FRESH, homemade jam!
It's much healthier and costs a lot less!

 

I love this recipe because it has a LOT less sugar than other recipes! I especially love making peach, apricot, pear, grape or plum jam in the fall but you can use whatever is available during the year, depending on where you live. Choose whatever fruit is in season in your area.

 


5 cups mashed fruit

2 cups granulated sugar

½ cup light corn syrup (stops crystallizing of sugar)

3 – 5 tbsp. Clear Jel (Instant)

 

Mix sugar and Clear Jel (Instant) together.

Mix mashed fruit and corn syrup together and mix well.

Slowly add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients.

Put in freezer containers and freeze.

 

Money Saving Tip: Use Clear Jel (Instant) INSTEAD of pectin. It's much cheaper and allows you to use MUCH LESS sugar in your recipe. I've made Apricot Jam and Pear Jam with this recipe and they have both been delicious!!


WHERE TO BUY CLEAR JEL (Instant): Gygi Culinary Solutions - gygi.com

Cost: $10.95 for 5 lb bag - This bag makes a lot of jam and will last a LONG time or share it with a friend and share the cost if you like.
