Strawberry Freezer Jam (sweetened with white grape juice)

Ingredients
16 c. already-hulled and mashed strawberries*
3 c. white grape juice
4 1/2 T. low-sugar pectin (you could also try gelatin)
(optional: 3 c. raw honey)

Supplies
25 – 8 oz jelly jars with lids and bands
canning funnel

large stock pot
potato masher
tongs

Instructions
1. In a small saucepan, simmer lids in water.

2. In a large stockpot, blend mashed strawberries and white grape juice.  Gradually stir in pectin.

3. Bring the mixture to a boil that cannot be stirred down.

4. Turn heat off.  Ladel the hot mixture into the jelly jars.  Remove the lids from the hot water with tongs and place on top of each jar.  Screw bands finger-tight on jars.  Let cool to room temperature.  Listen for the lids to seal.  Place the jars in the freezer when totally cooled.

* We picked 24 pounds of berries, and froze a one gallon freezer bag full of them.  The rest we used for the jam.
