easy straw-peasy jam

we love strawberry jam...who doesn't, but i need something super quick that i can whip up while the kids are napping. so freezer jam is perfect!

when strawberries are in season {{now}} you can grab a few quarts for about $1, so you can have fresh jam for less than $3 for a few's what i stolen from grandma e:

rinse and crush 2 cups strawberries, fresh {of course}
4 cups of sugar
1 package of {sure jell} dry pectin
3/4 cup water

mix the sugar and crush strawberries and let sit to juice for about 10 minutes.
mix pectin and water in a saucepan and bring to a boil for a minute or so. {directions will be on the box of pectin you buy just in case}
pour boiling water mixture into the juiced strawberries.
let set for about 3 minutes before adding to freezer safe need to boil and seal jars here...i use the glad take and toss containers bc they fit great in the freezer.
put the lids on and let sit out for 24 hours before freezing.
keep frozen until using...
