I wanted to see what it would be like to make cherry freezer jam.  It was out of my element and not as difficult as I tried to make it.

All gel comes with recipes on how to do it.

The differences I found.  In freezer jam, you add water and you don’t use jars (or I didn’t, I used Tupperware Freezer Containers.)

Canning involves no water, sterilized jars, lids and seals.

What You’ll Need:
2 cups chopped fruit to freeze (we used sweet cherries)
4 cups Sugar
3/4 cup water
1 package fruit pectin

Don't have time to can your fruit to make jam? Just have a little bit of fruit, make freezer jam!| eattravellife.comIn a stock pot, add the sugar, water and fruit pectin and bring to a boil for 1 minute (where it boils and you can’t get it to calm down)

Remove from heat and add the fruit, mixing until blended.

Place into freezer container, leaving at least 1/4″ space from the top (look for the fill lines on Tupperware to ensure you don’t over fill) Frozen things expand, you don’t want a surprise in your freezer later.

Allow to cool before placing into the freezer.

Freeze the jam and pull out a container as needed.

Enjoy!
