Sugar Free Strawberry Jam

SUGAR FREE STRAWBERRY JAM

Here’s a quick, easy, and healthy strawberry jam. The bonus? It’s really awesome spread on whole wheat toast.

 

2 cups strawberries, stemmed and sliced if very large

1 cup cold water

1 package, 3 oz., strawberry flavored gelatin, sugar free

 

Crush berries in a large saucepan. Add water and gelatin and mix well. Over medium heat, bring to boiling, stirring constantly. Reduce heat to low and simmer a couple of minutes.  Pour into clean jars, let cool, then cover. Store in refrigerator up to two weeks or freeze for a month or so.

 

 

Tips from Rita’s kitchen

  • Strawberries have more vitamin C than some citrus. They are high in fiber, folate, potassium and antioxidants, and that means they help reduce the chances of heart disease, high blood pressure and certain cancers. Plus they are yummy!A cup of strawberries has about 60 calories and contains over 100% of the recommended daily dose of vitamin C for kids.
  • Leave stems on strawberries when cleaning and clean right before using. Remove stems after berries drain. This prevents them from soaking up water as you wash them.
