I had nearly two quarts of fresh strawberries I needed to use and Nikki suggested freezer jam. Someone else asked for a freezer jam recipe using something other than cane sugar so I bought powdered pectin specifically for freezer jam. I hulled and quartered the berries and Nikki smashed them with a potato masher. The recipe used 3 1/3 cups smashed berries with juice, which was about 6 cups whole berries. The recipe made about 5 half pints of jam.
3 1/3 cups strawberries, cleaned, hulled and smashed
1 cup light agave nectar
4 Tbs pectin for freezer jam
In a large bowl, mix agave and pectin. Stir in the berries and continue stirring for three minutes. Ladle jam into half pint containers and freeze until ready to use.
