Strawberry Surprise Freezer Jam

Strawberry Surprise Freezer Jam is an excellent choice when you have plenty of fresh strawberries at hand or if you are looking for a quick Christmas gift for someone.

If you're making this for a gift, you might want to choose some especially pretty glass jars or freezer containers.

But adding a hand printed label (maybe your children can make the labels) and a square of cloth tied on with some bright ribbon will really make this a delight for someone special.


What's the surprise in the Jam?


It's fresh pineapple!



What You'll Need:

1 pt box of fresh strawberries, hulls removed (enough to make 2 1/2 C crushed strawberries)

2 1/2 C of fresh pineapple, peeled and finely chopped

7 C sugar

2 pkgs (1 3/4 oz) powdered pectin

1 C cold water

4 pt freezer containers with lids

You'll also need a potato masher.

How to Make It:

  1. Wash the fresh hulled strawberries and let drain for a minute or pat dry. Place them in a large mixing bowl and crush them with a potato masher.
  2. Measure out 2 1/2 C crushed strawberries and place in a separate bowl.
  3. Add the finely chopped fresh pineapple to the strawberries.
  4. Slowly add the sugar and stir until well combined.
  5. Place the cold water in a saucepan over medium heat. Add the pectin. Stir continuously until water begins to boil.
  6. Boil 1 minute then remove from heat.
  7. Pour the water mixture carefully (no burns, please) into the fruit. Stir well to combine. Continue stirring 4 minutes.
  8. Pour into the pint freezer containers and cover.
  9. let stand at room temperature for 24 hours. Freeze after 24 hours.


Strawberry Surprise Freezer Jam will stay good in the freezer for up to 6 months.

To use, remove from freezer and allow to come to room temperature, about 1 hour. Keep covered and refrigerate for up to 3 weeks.
