Making your own freezer jam, naturally.

I have so many recipes I need to post, but in the meantime, here is a great article on  making your own freezer jam from Passionate Homemaking. There is nothing tastier for breakfast in the summer than scooping some  refreshing freezer jam on toast or a biscuit, and this post talks about how to make a more healthy version. The best part is that no cooking or caning is involved! One note: The instructions here say to store in the fridge  once the jam is frozen. You can do that, but it won't last as long. I personally like to keep my jam in the freezer and just  sit it out for a few minutes before we eat it. That way, it lasts for a long time... you can even enjoy it in the winter months. Also, while the type of pectin she recommends definitely sounds superior to other types, if you do not have any of this kind, regular fruit pectin from the grocery store will also work. If you do use regular pectin, you will not need the calcium water. Simply refer to the instructions inside the box for freezer jam. Here is the recipe!
