I made this exactly as directed and it is waaaaay too sweet. I would definitely suggest you experiment with less sugar.
Not sure about freezer canning part, however you can remove air bubbles by using a bubble remover, which you can find here.
Although if your like me, I like to save money. So I bought the whole set which you can find here:
Either way, all you do is when you pour your jam, jelly, etc. into the jar, you take the bubble remover and just gently slide it around the inside wall of the jar between the jelly and the jar. This helps create a seal and reduces the chance of the seal breaking at a later time.
Hope this helps.
This sounds delicious, but I've never canned except for freezer canning. Can the recipe be translated into freezer canning? Also, I'm unfamiliar with removing air bubbles. What do you do to remove air bubbles? Thank you!
This looks like a great recipe but you need to include the times for different altitudes!!! Like in my area all jams and jellies need 10-15 minute processing times. Taste Of Home you should know better!
