strawberry freezer jam (honey-sweetened)

*This was supposed to be posted the day I left. Somehow that didn't happen. Oops!
I'll be back soon with a little blog about my trip*

I'm off to Washington for the next ten days. I'm looking forward to the non-humid, and somewhat cool weather they have been having there. Hopefully i'll find the time to pop in here and show you what i've been up to. But for now here is an awesome sugar free freezer jam recipe.

It sets up like regular jam, tastes amazing and is much healthier than the sugar alternative. And it takes a whopping 5 minutes to make (give or take?)

Strawberry freezer jam (honey-sweetened)
4 cups strawberries
1 T lemon juice
1/2 cup honey
(this can vary, depending on how sweet your berries are. Start at 1/3 and go up to 1 cup if needed)
1 package of No sugar needed pectin
3/4 cup water

Clean and stem berries. Blend with honey in food processor/blender until pureed.

Pour pureed berries into a bowl and add lemon juice and water. Sprinkle on the pectin and stir until well incorporated.

Ladle into clean jars/containers, leaving plenty of room for expansion. Let sit in the refrigerator for a few hours to set up and then transfer to the freezer to store



  1. Oh. My. Goodness. This looks fabulous! I will try it out this very week. A lot of men at my place and I bet they'll go nuts over it. Love the honey too. Thanks for this.

  2. This looks brilliant and is perfect for me as I'm trying to lose weight at the moment, I'll definitely be giving this a try. xxx

  3. this looks so yummy. could you substitute a different fruit like peaches instead of the strawberries? i definitely want to try both lol.

  4. This sounds so good... I'm so mad I'm about to move so I have to wait to try it out, ugh. :)

  5. I want have to know more and more, on your blog just interesting and useful information.
