2 Ingredient Recipe

STRAWBERRIES: Choose fresh strawberries that are free of debris or bruises. Be sure to remove the hull and rinse them well. If using frozen strawberries, drain them in a colander until they are dry enough to use. PRO TIP: Save the juice and add it to a smoothie!

FREEZER PECTIN: This recipe is made possible thanks to the availability of sugar free pectin, such as Bernardin No Sugar Needed Freezer Jam Pectin, made with sweetener instead of sugar. Alternatively, plain freezer pectin could be used with your preferred sugar free sweetener to taste to make a regular no cook freezer jam!

Tips For Success!

  • Pectin will work best if the strawberries (fresh or frozen) are at room temperature.
  • Use a timer in Step 2 to be sure the process of stirring and waiting is accurate. This ensures the proper gel before pouring it into the jars.
  • If adding other fresh fruits, mash them with the strawberries so they have the same consistency. Peaches perform best in this recipe if they are peeled first, or use frozen peaches and thaw them first.
  • Try for an even texture when mashing the strawberries. 
  • The jam will thicken as it sets. If you’d like, test the jam’s consistency by adding ⅓ cup mashed berries with ½ teaspoon no sugar added pectin. (Or simply make a tiny batch for the freshest jam!)
  • If you prefer a thicker jam, leave a little of the berry juice behind, and just before adding it to the jars, add juice to get the desired consistency. Note: Adding more sugar free pectin may make the jam more sweet than you’d like.

    1. Hi Karen, it does seem to be a tricky thing to find online. I found it at my local grocery store, as well as hardware store where they sell jars and other canning supplies. The brand I used is called Bernardin. Good luck finding it!
