Easy Strawberry Freezer Jam Hip2Save

If you love homemade jam, but you want to bypass the canning process, then this post is for you! Take advantage of inexpensive and ripe summer strawberries (and other berries!) and make your own easy homemade freezer jam with no canning required! This jam tastes delicious, calls for just four ingredients, and is super budget-friendly as it ends up being much less expensive than store bought jam. Plus, let the kids help you mash the strawberries and it can be a fun indoor summer activity. 🙂

Strawberry Freezer Jam (Low Sugar Recipe)

(Adapted from Diabetic Living Summer 2014)


2 cups ripe strawberries, crushed (about 1 and 1/2 pints of fresh strawberries)
3 tablespoons Pectin for low sugar recipes
1/2 cup orange juice
1 and 1/4 cups sugar

How to make freezer jam Hip2Save


Clean and crush strawberries with a potato masher in a large bowl.

Pour sugar, pectin and orange juice in a medium sized saucepan on the stove. Bring to a boil and let boil for 1 minute. Stir well and be careful mixture doesn’t burn.

Take off heat, add strawberries and combine well. Pour into containers leaving a 1/2 inch space at the top for expansion. Cover with lids and let sit on the counter for 24 hours to set. Store in freezer and then thaw a container in fridge when you’re ready to use.

Notes: In its frozen state, this jam should be good for at least 6 months when stored properly. Once open, the jam will keep in the fridge for 1-2 weeks. For this reason, I prefer to store my jam in smaller Tupperware containers with tight lids.

Freezer jam doesn’t last long in our house – my kiddos enjoy making toast and sandwiches with it! And keep in mind that you can also make different fruit combos like mango strawberry, raspberry /strawberry, etc.

Have you ever had moments when you're either out of time or out of printer ink, or both, and you really want to keep track of a "Hip" deal or print a valuable coupon in the next day or two? Or what do you do when an outstanding, but pricey, deal is posted and you want to save it for discussion with your significant other? Well, now you're in luck! No more searching through pages of posts to find the coupon or the deal. Simply move the post to your Hip List and access it at your convenience.

How Does the Hip List Work?

It's easy! To use this feature, first head on over here and register and log into your account. Whenever you find a great deal that you want to come back to later at a later time, just click on the HIP List icon located on each post (see images below) and the information will be saved in your account. To remove a post from your HIP List, just click on the HIP List icon and it will be removed.

When logged into your account, you will see the HIP List icon at the bottom of every post if you are viewing in classic view.

If you prefer to view in river view, you will see the HIP List icon located on every post above the post title and to the right.

If you're wanting to print a certain deal, blog post, or the Weekly Store Matchups from your HIP list, click on the small blue printer icon in the upper right corner of the HIP list. This will allow you to customize the information that you want or don't want to include when printing from your HIP list so you're only printing the information that's most important to you! If there are deals (or portions of deals) that you are not interested in printing, just click on the red x button to remove them. To restore a section, click on the green arrow icon in the upper right hand corner.
