Using Home-Preserved Foods

Do not thaw more food than is needed.

Frozen food spoils more rapidly than fresh foods.

Thawing in the refrigerator is the best method.

You can thaw the strawberry freezer jam recipe at room temperature for 2 hours and then complete thawing in the refrigerator.

When guidelines are followed making strawberry freezer jam, there should be little concern about the quality and safety of your home canned foods.

However, it is recommended to examine each jar before it is served for any changes that might have occurred.

To open jars with vacuum sealed lids, release the vacuum with a can opener and lift off the lid.

This method of removing lids will help prevent damage to the jar's sealing surface.

Do not serve any product that shows signs of spoilage.

The recommended storage length for strawberry freezer jam kept at zero degrees is 12 months.
