Mix 1 lb of strawberries, 3/4 cup sugar, and 2 Tbsp of lemon juice in a saucepan (you can use organic).  Then stir on med-low heat until sugar is dissolved.

Increase the heat to med-high and bring to a boil.  Boil for about 30 minutes, stirring continuously while mashing the strawberries.

You’ll know it’s done when the jam is thick (it will not thicken more as it cools) and bubbles completely cover the surface of the jam.  (If you have a candy thermometer, this is about 215*).

Pour jam into jars and let cool.  We store them in our freezer.

Enjoy your delicious homemade strawberry freezer jam!
