Strawberry Freezer Jam Recipe  2 pints strawberries, or enough to make  2 cups crushed strawberries  1 1/2 Tablespoons lemon juice  4 cups granulated sugar  1(3 ounce) envelope Certo  This recipe makes 4 cups, so wash and rinse 2-4 jars, depending on what size you decide to you.  This is freezer jam, so wash the jars in hot soapy water, and rinsed in hot clean water.  Give the berries a rinse and remove the stems. Mash the berries by hand in a large bowl with a potato masher. It is nice to have texture to the berries.  Measure exactly 2 cups of strawberries into a large bowl along with the sugar and stir together. Once you the two well mixed, let stand for 10 minutes. Stir occasionally.  While the mixture is sitting take a small bowl or glass measuring cup and stir the Certo pectin into the lemon juice.  Once you have waiting the required 10 minutes for the berry/sugar mixture, stir in the pectin mixture with a wooden spoon or spatula.  You will need to stir for about 4 minutes until the sugar is completely dissolved and you see no grains of sugar left behind other than a bit that may be clinging to the side of the bowl.  Ladle the jam into the clean jars and leave 1/2 space at the top of each jar.  This is very important as the jam will expand when it freezes. Put a lid on each jar and leave the jam at room temperature for 24 hours to set.  Store in the freezer. This jam is good for a year. When you want to eat a jar, just transfer to the refrigerator to thaw and store any uneaten jam in the refrigerator. Good for about 3 weeks. by kandersen
