Sugar Free Jam Recipe

This sugar free jam recipe is for a fridge jam - that is it needs to be kept in the fridge and eaten within a fairly short period of time. 

summer fruits make a perfect sugar free jam creativelypaleo.com

Making a jam that will keep for a year or more, in a jar on the shelf, is realistically not going to happen without a large amount of sugar unfortunately. However it is possible to have a year round supply of a paleo friendly jam if you have a freezer.

This is not going to compare to a jar of either store bought or homemade jam as it has neither the syrupy sweetness nor the consistency of that type of jam (I plan on playing with home made pectin in the next couple of weeks and will let you know how that turns out as and when). 

That aside, this jam works brilliantly as a cake filling or over the top of yogurt (if you eat it, my children do).

If you want to make it and freeze it that will work just fine, or alternatively you could freeze batches of seasonal berries or other fruits ready to whizz up a batch as you fancy it.

You can find out why I came up with this jam over on our new blog here.
