There is so much beautiful fruit at the farmers market these days and what better way to capture the flavor than making jam. The only problem? It is a pain in the ass to cook fruit down to the right consistency on top of the whole canning process, and I just don’t have the time or patience. If you share this feeling, then you can understand why I was so happy to learn of this no-cook freezer jam process. Seems simple enough – lightly crush your fruit of choice, mix in sugar and other flavorings, and stir in pectin. After making 4 batches, I learned it was a bit more nuanced.
