No-Cook Freezer Jam Recipes

One of my favorite cooks and eating partners, Sara Foster, has once again shared some brilliant recipes. This time she offers us ways to capture the sweetness of summer without overcooking. According to Sara, in this Organic Gardeningarticle, freezer jams are “another, easier way to get that sunny flavor in the middle of winter… Unlike traditional canned jam, these preserves do not require long days of preparation, exact cooking times (or any cooking at all sometimes), sterilizing jars, and hours of time.”

It’s hard to choose a favorite flavor combination between Blackberry Lavender, Balsamic Strawberry and Fig Apple. Knowing Sara, each is a winner; I think I”ll start with Blackberry Lavender.

      Check out the article that I’ve linked to in Organic Gardening. You’re basically just adding pectin and freezing to capture all the fresh fruitness of it all. Try it and let me know what you think.
