Recipe Round-up: Strawberry Jam this way and that

Well, I’m halfway through a lovely long holiday weekend.  We spent Independence Day grilling with the in-laws, and my mother-in-law invited us to go strawberry picking.  Heck yes we want to come!  So yesterday morning we braved the hot summer sun to pick a giant crate of strawberries.

I’d done a bit of research ahead of time to make sure that there was such a thing as “sugar free jam”… I figured there must be, right?  Yes, there is!  I found two great recipes.  One of them uses “instant pectin” and therefore doesn’t rely on cup after cup of sugar to solidify the jam, and the other is a chia seed based jam.  Both are great recipes for beginning jam makers, since neither requires cooking or any real canning skills.

I made 11 jars of freezer jam using stevia, and four jars of chia seed jam to finally use up all the berries.  They will go well on almond pancakes, a spoonful of nut butter, or the occasional piece of dark chocolate.  Or, heck, just a straight spoonful by itself!

Some of the freezer jam… I think i’m going to have to make some friends, i’m never going to go through all this myself!
