Strawberry Jam Is Refined Sugar-Free and Delicious

You will be surprised how this raspberry jam that is refined sugar-free, packaged pectin-free is so delicious!  We make our own pectin from the lemons though to help it stick together.

  1. Can I change the strawberries to raspberries?
    To other kinds of fruit as well – like blueberries or peaches for example.

    Can I make it without the psyllium husks?

    Thanks for your answer, Janey

  2. Hi, I appreciate a jam recipe without sugar. Could I use chia seeds instead of psyllium husks?
    Thank you.

  3. I have made this using chia seeds to thicken it. Works great. I also made prickly pear jam, using much of same ingredients!

    1. Thank you Debra for the update. I thought it would, just had not tried it yet. Love to see a picture of your prickly pear jam with the recipe. Maybe we could post it here for others?

  4. Could I use these similar ingredients for marmalade? I always make my own but of course..with sugar. Would very much like to try without the sugar! Suggestions would be very much appreciated!
