Slow Cooker Strawberry Jam

  • Cooking Time:

    10 - 12 hours
  • Servings:

    3-4 pints


4 lbs. Fresh Strawberries (or your favorite seasonal berries)
3 c. Sugar, (I use 1/2 Stevia, 1/2 sugar)
2-3.5 oz. Pectin Powder (can use HTF sugar-free version)

Slow Cooker Strawberry Jam is great as a topping for banana splits or your breakfast toast! You will love it!

  1. Wash all of the strawberries or berries of your choice, and cut out the stems. Quarter and place in a 6-Quart Slow Cooker. (or keep other, smaller berries whole.)
  2. With a potato masher, mash the strawberries (berries) to create liquid.
  3. Add the sugar or (sugar substitute) and 1 box of pectin.
  4. Stir to fully dissolve then smash some more.
  5. Cover. Cook on Low for 10 hours.
  6. If your berries are still not jelling the way that you would like them to, add the other 1/2 box to a full box of pectin and cook on HIGH to thicken (about 1 hour longer.)
  7. Place finished product in individual jars or containers. refrigerate or freeze right away.

Happy Crocking!

this doesnt make sense. if you want it for toast you have to keep it in the freezer? why is that? wouldnt you just add more pectin if it doesnt set up? dont want frozen jam on my toast!! as for the vacumm sealed lids, thats just un-safe.
