Strawberry Freezer Jam

One of the best parts about shopping at Meijer is the clearance produce rack! We eat a TON of fresh produce weekly, and being a bargain shopper that I am, I like good deals on my produce too!

Sunday was the day I hit the jackpot. I was able to snatch up 25lbs of Strawberries for less than $14! They were perfectly red, beautiful, and without blemish… :) Don’t worry there were plenty of ¬†$0.50 clearance strawberries left.

My husband and I went home and made A LOT of low sugar freezer jam!


Makes 4- 8 oz. containers


  • 3 lbs. strawberries, hulled and stems removed
  • 1 3/4 cups apple juice
  • 1 1/2 package no sugar, low sugar pectin (I find that using 1 1/2 package really gets the jam to set perfectly!)


  • Mash the strawberries in a large bowl
  • In a small saucepan, bring the apple juice and pectin to a boil and boil for 1 minute.
  • Pour straight into the mashed strawberries and stir hard for 1 minute.
  • Ladle into the freezer containers and place in the refrigerator overnight to let it cool slowly and set.
  • Then store in the freezer.
  • Good in the freezer for up to 1 year, in the fridge for 3 weeks.

    Can you find that pectin at Meijer? And is it still sweet and set well? I tried a lower sugar recipe before and it was kind of runny – doesn’t set as well as the reg. freezer jam. Just wondering – thanks.
