This recipe actually took quite a few trials to perfect.  I’ve never made jam before in my life, so nearly every batch was gloopy and droopy and oh so sad  :(

Who knew making jam could be so difficult?  But, I FINALLY got a firm jam that you can sink your knife into and will actually keep it’s shape.  Only took 5 trials.

*exhales*

Anyways, now that I’ve perfected the recipe I’ve made three batches in the last two weeks.

I put it on…  pretty much everything.  My favorite right now is Greek yogurt, but it’s also good on crackers and of course, PB&J sandwiches.  It’s really good on Vanilla Fro Yo too!

WOW, 2 tbs of Smucker’s jam is basically 2 tbs of PURE sugar.

Smucker’s jam vs. DWB’s jam2 tbs of sugary syrup camouflaged as jam vs. 2 tbs of real fruit!

I’ll take the real fruit version, please.  And like, 7 tbs of it too.

    I am still looking for a decent jam recipe that is both healthy and able to be canned. I don’t have freezer space, and am looking for something that will help preserve fruit when we can’t get it in season (in the midwest, thats like 11 months of the year). CAN ANYONE HELP???

  2. Sherry Pinkard: July 8, 2014

    What is the shelf life of this recipe please? Does it need to be refrigerated? Thank you :D

    Sherry Pinkard-
    I’m sorry, I’m not a jam/canning expert so I honestly don’t know… I would say ~3 weeks to be safe, even though I’m sure it could last longer than that.
    I hope this helps! :)

    Yum! This looks really good! It’s nice to see a healthy jam recipe without chia seeds or metamucil (not that I have anything against metamucil but I just don’t have it on hand… and I want this jam in my mouth NOW! :-) )

    Emily-
    Oh I totally get it! First of all, I ate the crunch of chia seeds since strawberries already have like, a bajillion seeds, and second, a cooked jam is just way more authentic.
    (I made the jam with psyllium after way too many failed attempts at a cooked jam, but I finally did it!)
    I hope you get to make the recipe. And I hope it lands in your mouth ASAP.
    ;)
