    This doesn't use real strawberries but it is really good and easy to make.....


    Strawberry Rhubarb freezer jam

    5 cups of rhubarb, cut up
    4 cups of sugar

    let these two sit until they make juice......
    then cook for 10 minutes.

    add 1 small can of crushed pineapple and cook 5 minutes more.

    Remove from heat.

    stir in 2 small boxes of strawberry jello and put in containers to freeze.

    Here's the one I use:

    EZ STRAWBERRY FREEZER JAM

    2 cups mashed fresh ripe strawberries
    4 cups sugar
    1 package (1.75 oz) Sure-Jell powdered pectin
    1 cup water

    Hull strawberries and crush them until you have 2 cups.
    Combine strawberries and sugar in a bowl and let sit for 30 minutes, stirring occasionally.
    Combine pectin and water in a saucepan and bring to a boil.
    Boil for 1 minute, stirring constantly.
    Stir the pectin mixture into the strawberry mixture and continue stirring for 3 minutes.
    Pour into clean freezer jars, leaving 1/2 inch head space. Cap and let stand until jam has set, but no longer than 24 hours, then freeze.
    Thaw overnight in refrigerator before using. Will then keep in refrigerator for about a month.
    Makes about 5 half-pints.
    NOTE: I always freeze mine in jars, but I'm sure you could put them in plastic freezer containers instead. Enjoy!
