No-Cook Freezer Jam
  • 4 cups mashed fruit
  • 1 ½ cups of sugar or Splenda (the granulated kind for baking)
  • 5 Tablespoons of Ball brand Real Fruit Instant Pectin *Make sure you're using INSTANT pectin for this recipe*
  1. Wash and mash your fruit–about 2 lbs. makes 4 cups of fruit. If you like your jam with chunks of fruit you can do it by hand with a potato masher, but I just gave it a whirl in my blender–super easy!
  2. In a separate bowl, briskly wisk 1 ½ cups of sugar and 5 tablespoons of pectin.
  3. Add the mashed fruit to the pectin/sugar mixture and stir for 3 minutes making sure to scrape sides and bottom of bowl. (I did all the whisking/mixing in my KitchenAid with the whisk attachment–again, super easy!)
  4. Pour into clean containers that can freeze (glass jars or plastic freezer containers) and let it set on the counter for 30 minutes before freezing.
