If you are going to cook this now… line your crockpot with the foil and build your boat in the crockpot and add the jam in there. I am going to freeze this so I wrap it in foil and then I place it in a freezer bag. I had to use two because of the size but that is fine. When you are ready thaw this and place it in your slow cooker for 6-8 hours.
