My grandma’s recipe for Strawberry Rhubarb Freezer Jam, which I grew up eating on soft homemade bread, is one of the most delicious foods I’ve ever put in my mouth! It’s incredibly easy and actually very quick!
Whenever we’re craving something sweet, I pull out some rhubarb and strawberries, which have been chopped and frozen in the summer, and make this simple jam for my family. They LOVE it! It’s good for morning toast, pancakes and waffles too.
Even if you don’t feel like you are great at cooking or making food from scratch, this is a recipe that is very forgiving and manageable! It uses just three simple ingredients and a bit of patience :)
Strawberry Rhubarb Freezer Jam
4 cups cut rhubarb
2 cups strawberries
1 1/2 cups sugar
The original recipes calls for 4 cups of sugar total but I reduced it to 3 (sorry, Grandma!).
These can either be stored in true canning fashion by finishing them in a canner or just letting the jars cool completely and placing them in the freezer. I use glass jars because putting the jam in them while still hot allows for a tighter seal.
You can use pectin if you’d like, but I don’t and I still love the consistency!
*What a rolling boil means to me: Bringing the jam to a boil that does not go down even when stirred.
I hope you enjoy this recipe that has been passed down through the generations! Sometimes simple is best!
