How to Make Strawberry Mango Freezer Jam is super easy as far as jam making goes. It hardly takes any time and the result is well worth the time and effort. This Easy Strawberry Mango Freezer Jam Recipe uses Sure-Jell Pectin, Strawberries, Mangos and sugar. The resulting jam is beautiful to look at and tastes really divine. My kids could slurp it up. You won’t find this flavor combination (strawberry/mango) on the box, but it should be. :) It’s a great homemade gift idea for any occasion, too!
Strawberry Mango Freezer Jam Ingredients
- 4 cups prepared fruit made up of strawberries and mangos (I usually use the fruit of 1-2 mangos to make up part of of the 4 cups of fruit)
- 1 cup of water
- 1 box SURE-JELL Premium Fruit Pectin (make sure you buy the pink box. This is important)
- 3 cups sugar
(directions for the most part from the SURE.JELL box)
GATHER four pint jars and make sure they are washed and dried.
PREPARE strawberries and mangos. You need 4 cups total of crushed fruit. I blend my washed/prepared fruit in the blender since I don’t like “chunks” in my jam. I usually use the fruit of 1-2 mangos to help make up my 4 cups of fruit. Set aside.
POUR sugar (3 cups) into saucepot. Add package of pectin and 1 cup of water. Bring mixture to a boil over medium-high heat, stirring constantly. Don’t walk away! Once it’s reached a boil, set a timer and boil for 1 minute. Remove from heat.
POUR fruit mixture (4 cups) into the hot sugar-pectin mixture and stir for 1 minute.
POUR immediately into clean jars, filling to 1/2 inch of tops to allow for expansion during freezing. Wipe jar rims and threads. Allow to set at room temperature for 24 hours, and then freeze or refrigerate. Good in freezer for up to a year.
EMBELLISH jars with gift tag if you are giving as a gift. I found these free printable tags from Eat Drink Chic. The fabulous thing about her labels is that she has printables for six varieties of jam!
