Homemade Jam in a Snap: No-Cook Freezer Jam

Updated on April 8, 2013

Think you're too busy to make your own homemade jam? If you ever saw your grandmother or someone else make jam, it's no wonder you think the process takes more time than you have to spare.

Easy No-Cook Jam

The good news is that making jam doesn't have to take hours of hard work over a hot stove. As a matter of fact, with Ball® no cook "Freezer Jam Pectin" and plastic "Freezer Jars", you don't even have to go near your stove to make jam. You can make your favorite flavor (or flavors) in just a few minutes with the easy no-cook Ball® method.

With this modern twist on creating homemade jam, you can make as little or as much as you want. You also don't have to make a huge quantity of jam when you use this easy and quick homemade jam making technique. You can make small batches for immediate consumption, or you can make enough to freeze and use as needed. The choice is yours!

Making Jam: As Easy as Pie!

Even if you can't cook at all, you can create delicious jam for you and your family to enjoy. You'll find complete instructions on the Ball Freezer Jam Pectin package. You'll simply combine your favorite fruit (fresh, frozen, or canned) with sweetener and pectin. You can come up with your own unique combinations (blueberry and raspberry?) or go with tried and true fruit jam favorites (strawberry?).

You'll need to crush the fruit, stir in the sugar or your favorite artificial sweetener, and you're ready to go. Once you've mixed everything together, you'll just place the concoction in specially made plastic freezer jars from Ball®. Next, all you'll need to do is make some toast and enjoy your favorite flavor of homemade jam.

Jam Storage Tips

You can store your homemade jam in the refrigerator for up to three weeks, or you can freeze it to enjoy later for up to a year. The plastic freezer jars from Ball are very convenient, because they have simple to use twist on lids that make it easy to seal in the freshness. They're also specially designed to stack on top of each other, so the risk of tipping is minimal. You can also you straight shouldered glass jars.

Enjoy the Fruits of Your Labors!

Delicious homemade jam is a great everyday treat for you and your family, and it also makes a terrific gift for the holidays or any other special occasion. It's up to you whether or not you want to share the secret of just how easy making your own homemade jam really is.
