The project this weekend was freezer jam. I got 24 jars done Saturday night and another 6 jars done on Sunday. I discovered a new product…Ball’s No Cook Freezer Jam Fruit Pectin. I’ve made jam for years, but I’d always used regular pectin and just followed their freezer jam instructions. Never again. I’m hooked on the new stuff for sure. Why?
No adding lemon juice
No 4 cups of sugar per batch (only 1.5 cups to 4 cups of fruit with this stuff)
No stirring for hours ’til all that sugar is dissolved
And, it’s cheaper
I got about 6 8oz containers per batch, even though the package says it yields 5.
I also found these. Love ‘em!
