Sugar Free Strawberry Freezer Jam

Not only is this Sugar Free Strawberry Jam sugar free, it's also sugar substitute free!  It's not as sweet as traditional sugared jam, but is every bit as delicious.  It's perfect on a slices of fresh, hot bread like French Bread or Great Harvest Honey Whole Wheat Bread.

4 pounds sweet, ripe strawberries, stems removed
2 1/3 cups apple juice
2 packages less sugar or sugar free jam pectin

Place strawberries in a large bowl and mash with a potato masher (I cheated and put mine in a food processor).  Pour apple juice in a small sauce pan and whisk in pectin.  Bring to a boil, stirring often, and boil 1 minute.  Pour hot syrup over strawberries and mix well.  Pour into 1 cup freezer containers (make sure to leave 1/2 inch at the top to allow for expansion when freezing).  Place in the refrigerator over night, then store in the freezer.  Keep opened containers in the refrigerator and use within 2 weeks.

Recipe adapted from 5 Dollar Dinners.
