I had wanted to make homemade jam for years but was too intimidated by the process.  Then about 2 years ago I learned how to make freezer jam.  I’m still intimidated by the canning process, but I promise that this easy freezer jam is easy enough for anyone with a freezer to make.  And it tastes so good that you’d better start off by making a double batch!Easy Freezer Jam - Organized 31

Prepare the recipe and fill clean containers, leaving space for the frozen jam to expand.  Leave the container of jam out for 24 hours.  Then store in the freezer.Easy Freezer Jam - Organized 31

This jam is delicious on bread, ice cream, pound cake or just on a spoon.  I find myself stopping by the fridge for a spoonful of jam several times a day lately.  Consider yourself warned!Easy Freezer Jam - Organized 31

  1. Hi Susan – I too have always been intimidated by canning but this looks easy enough even for me! I love the ability to have such control on your own ingredients. MUST TRY! Pinned! Hugs, Holly

  2. I remember eating freezer jam at my grandmother’s house. She grew her own berries and then made the jam. What a great memory! Thanks for the great recipe too!

  3. I’ve been wanting to make homemade jam too, but always thought it’s too difficult, and I’m more into baking (as you know)
    I’m so glad to see this post.
    I’m pinning it, and hopefully as soon as I’m on my feet again, I’ll try it
