We love homemade strawberry jam. I like to make the freezer version because it is so easy. We ran out of the last batch and as strawberries were on sale, I decided to make more.
I loaded my cart with strawberries and headed down the isle the pectin should be on. Apparently I was not the only one who wanted to make jam because they were totally out of the Sure Jell pectin I have always used. After some grumbling to myself, I decided to try out the jar of Ball brand pectin on the shelf. It comes in 3 varieties: Classic Pectin (AKA cooked version), Instant Pectin (freezer version) and Low Sugar version. I chose the Instant Pectin.
