Strawberry Freezer Jam

We picked a TON of strawberries this past weekend and we've been having so much fun finding new ways to devour them. One of my goals this summer was to make jam for the first time. I used this simple freezer jam recipe and felt so domestic! This jam is very sweet and if you like more of a fruit preserve, find a different recipe. This is for people who LOVE sweet jam! I'm also super excited about how the picture turned out. :)

2 cups crushed fresh strawberries
4 cups sugar
1 (1.75 ounce) package dry pectin
3/4 cup water

Mix crushed strawberries with sugar, and let stand for 10 minutes. Meanwhile, stir the pectin into the water in a small saucepan. Bring to a boil over medium-high heat, and boil for 1 minute. Stir the boiling water into the strawberries. Allow to stand for 3 minutes before pouring into jars or other storage containers.
Place tops on the containers, and leave for 24 hours. Place into freezer, and store frozen until ready to use.

Isn't it crazy how much sugar freezer jam calls for? I was traumatized the first time I made it!
