    Absolutely no cooking if you use the liquid pectin.

    Freezer jam is where you crush the fruit and stir in the sugar. Then you melt the pectin in 3/4 c. of water on the stove and boil for one min. You remove the water/pectin mixture from the stove and add it to the berries & sugar mix and stir for about 3 min. till all the sugar is dissolved.

    Then you put the jam in the jars and let "set" at room temp. for 24 hours before putting them in the freezer with the lids loose to allow for expansion. After they have frozen, you tighten down the lids and continue to store them in the freezer. When you want to bring out a jar for use, you let it thaw at room temp. and then store in the fridge.

    With freezer jam, you don't cook the berries and don't have to use the stove to water-bath the jars! :)

    Was much quicker than cooked jam and didn't heat up the kitchen! :)
    thank you for the info - will have to give it a go - sounds alot easier than standing over the cooker :thumbup:
