  Freezer jam is often called uncooked jam.   As noted by at
least one manufacturer of pectin, a few sugar crystals  will
remain  in freezer jams.  Nothing can be  done  about  this.

  If freezer jam is too firm, stir to soften. If it tends to
separate,  stir to blend. If it is too soft, bring it  to  a
boil.  It will thicken on cooling.                          
 Store  uncooked jams in the refrigerator or freezer.  They 
can be held for up to four weeks in a refrigerator or up to 
a year in a freezer. If kept at room temperature, they  will
mold or ferment in a short time. Once a container is opened,
jam  should be stored in the refrigerator.                  

  Freezer  jams can be made with powdered or liquid  pectin.
Check commercial packages for the recipes.
