How to Make Freezer Broke Jam
Take all the fruit in your freezer (or fridge, or yard) About 4 quarts in total and put in a 5 quart pot, blending up anything with peels, or fruits that may not break down well after cooking with a little water (quarter cup or so).
I ended up blending up all my apples (with peels) and peaches (without), and ladling out some chunks of berries after cooking a while and blending up most of them. We don’t care for super chunky jam, but if you do, feel free to blend less and keep it as chunky as you like.
Add your sugar to your fruit. I added 7 1/2 cups of sugar to this jam. If you want to add pectin now is the time for that as well.
Cook until it starts to thicken up quite a bit. My jam reduced by around a quarter when I got impatient and called it done enough.
Ladle hot jam into hot, clean jars or containers. Let it cool completely, then put it in the freezer (Thankfully we have a deep freezer and our regular fridge was working by then again.). Or, if you prefer, boil your jars in a water bath canner following the proper guidelines to make it shelf stable. I have canned jam before and it’s not too much trouble, but this time I ended up putting it in the freezer to save the extra steps. We got 8 and 1/2 pints of jam out of this batch, which is enough to last us quite a while.
Put jam on hot homemade biscuit, eat, and repeat.
