from "Delicious Meets Nutritious" Cookbook (Click here)
I can manually adjust cookbook shipping costs. Feel free to call me, if you are interested in this cookbook. :)
2 quarts strawberries*
3 cups Xagave (Click here)
Juice from 1/2 lemon
1 tsp. lemon zest
Lightly blend strawberries, Xagave, lemon juice and zest in blender (you want to keep it chunky). Pour mixture into pot, bring to a boil and reduce to a simmer. Let simmer for 45 minutes, stirring occasionally. Pour jam into an air tight container. Jam will store in your refrigerator for several months.
*Use this same recipe and you can make raspberry jam or peach jam. Excellent flavor and great jam.
Note from Paula: Not sure we will ever be able to go back to store bought strawberry jam. Not only is the flavor better but I know we are not getting the high sugar of store bought jam. You can also use this jam on your pancakes or waffles...yum! :)
