The instructions aren't difficult at all. I simply follow the quick & easy freezer jam directions that come along with the Sure Jell Pectin.

1. Rinse fruit, cut off tops, and quarter strawberries.

2. Using a food processor, immersion blender, or regular blender, crush berries, but be sure not to puree. Jam usually has bits of fruit.

7. Pour into containers, leaving 1/2" of space. Put lids on and let sit at room temperature for 24 hours. After, you can refrigerate for up to 3 weeks and freeze for 1 year.

How seriously easy is that? You all should definitely try it while strawberries are still cheap! :)
