Strawberry Freezer Jam

 Oh they taste just as good as they look!!!!
One of my husband's most favorite things in the whole world....
strawberry freezer jam
Which he usually bums off of his sisters.
We had a showing Friday and needed to be out of the house for a few hours anyways....
AND the strawberries were ready to pick this week!!!!
My beautiful son...he had such a great time picking strawberries and hunting for "the BIGGEST strawberry EVER!"
Of which there were many :)
We had a lot of fun...the weather was warm and it was beautiful out...a great place to be on a Friday in May with my family.
We went with the intention of picking a few quarts and ended up with about 13lbs...some of us get a little carried away....
So needless to say my husband had to make a run to the store to buy more sugar, sure jell and canning jars.
We made 23 pints of freezer jam and I have to say it's a pretty easy process...
we followed the instructions in the Sure Jell box
2 cups of hulled, crushed strawberries
4 cups of sugar
1 package of sure jell 
So very worth it!
We've already eaten half of one of our small jars and the rest are stowed away in the freezer....
23 pints should last till next summer but I have this feeling we'll be out much sooner....
