Raspberry or Strawberry Freezer Jam

3-1/2 cups mashed raspberries or strawberries
6-1/2 cups sugar
2 TBS lemon juice
1 package (2 oz.) pectin
1 cup cold water

1. Using a blender, blend up your fruit.

2. In a large bowl (3-4 quart) stir fruit and lemon juice together.

3. Stir in sugar. (Pour in half the sugar; stir, then add the rest of the sugar so you don't get clumps) Let sit while you prepare the pectin.

4. In a saucepan add water and pectin. Whisk together. Bring to a boil. While stirring boil rapidly for 1 minute.

5. Pour pectin mixture on berry mixture. Stir together for 5 minutes until sugar is dissolved.
