Strawberry Peach Freezer Jam

Time Needed: 15 minutes (plus 24 hours of sitting)
Level of difficulty: easy
Materials needed: 2 cups crushed strawberries, 1 1/2 cups crushed peaches (I throw both in the blender to crush), 7 cups sugar, 3/4 cup water, 1 package pectin (such as Sure Jell), 6 or so pint-sized Tupperware containers with lids
Directions: Combine your fruit mix and sugar and let sit for 10 minutes. Once that's had time to marinate, boil your water. Once it's boiling, add the pectin and boil for one minute. Then, add to the fruit and stir for 3 minutes. Put in freezer safe Tupperware and let sit on your counter for 24 hours. Then put one in your fridge and the rest in your freezer. Woo hoo!

Variations: This is obviously a VERY basic recipe. It's amazing with any fruit by itself or any combination you can think of. Besides strawberry peach (which is our ultimate fave), we love strawberry, raspberry, peach, and mixed berry. For just berries, I'd go with 4 cups of berries total.
