Freezer Strawberry Jam

It is almost that time again – time for fresh, juicy, local strawberries.  I can’t wait to get out into the fields and start picking, freezing and canning for the rest of the year.  This is such a simple recipe.

Preparation Time: 15 minutes

Cooking Time: Not available
Servings: About 5 cups (1.25L)


  • 1 quart (1 L) Ontario Strawberries
  • 4 cups (1 L) granulated sugar
  • 2 tbsp (25 mL) lemon juice
  • 1 pouch (85 mL) fruit pectin


Rinse, then hull strawberries. In bowl, thoroughly crush strawberries, one layer at a time. Measure 1-3/4 cups (425 mL) into a large bowl. Add sugar and mix; let stand 10 minutes. Add lemon juice and fruit pectin; stir for 3 minutes. (a few sugar crystals will remain). Ladle quickly into glass jars or plastic containers (up to 2 cups/500 mL each). Cover at once with tight lids. Let stand at room temperature until set (may take up to 24 hours). Refrigerate for up to 3 weeks or freeze for longer storage.

Thank you so much for stopping by this page to get to know a bit more about me and why I started Parent Guide Inc. My business story started a way back in 2001... …after the birth of my first daughter, I realized that an "all-in-one" resource guide for parents was needed, and fast! I designed the New Parent Resource Guide to fill a gap in the community for busy parents like myself. The New Parent Resource Guide offers an A-Z of key contacts for parents, caregivers, service providers, and health care professionals.  Working with key businesses and organizations in the community, we have also compiled much-needed articles, tips, and charts to answer all your parenting questions. The latest addition to our family is the School Age Resource Guide to serve parents of children, 3 to 18 years!  This guide answers questions about: nutrition, bullying, curriculum, building self-esteem, and much more, as well as offering a full directory of local and national resources. The website offers an “all-in-one” spot for parents to connect, add their own blog, and find needed resources in their community.  It is a site that educates and entertains and if you can't find somthing just ASK me. I am here to serve YOU!  My hope is that you connect with our members, find comfort in their words, and share your own story. My goal is to see what I can do to help make life a bit easier for you.   You are why I do what I do! I can’t wait to get to know you!  Comment below to tell me about yourself – then start blogging so we can find out what makes you get up in the morning!  Check out my blog too and I am sure you will be surprised what gets me out of bed each day!!!
