Grandma’s Jelly

It turns out that Grandma’s Jelly is Strawberry Freezer Jam, which is very easy to make. Mom and I made 12 jars while Alex took a nap on the floor. I can’t wait to take some home with me!

The recipe:
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.
