Sugar Free Strawberry Jam No Pectin


Sugar Free Strawberry Jam (no pectin) takes 10 minutes from start to finish and is pure simplicity.

This healthy, low calorie recipe yields 100g of jam containing 6g carbs in total, which equates to just 0.9g carbs per serving.

By far the easiest and quickest jam you’ll ever make. It’s smooth, spreadable but not too runny, and full of fruity flavour.

Not keen on strawberries? Choose whichever berries you prefer. Blueberries, raspberries, blackberries, or hybrid berries – they’ll all be fine.

How to Make Sugar Free Strawberry Jam (no pectin)

Pick the freshest, ripest strawberries. For the most intense flavour, choose plump, dark red and juicy berries. You can use frozen strawberries, but they will lack sweetness and will taste quite bland.

Start by blooming a little gelatine. I use a 250 bloom. If yours is a lower bloom, add a little more than the quantity specified in teh recipe.

Chop the strawberries into small pieces and pop them into a small saucepan with a squeeze of lemon juice and sweeteners.

Allulose works best in this recipe. My absolute favourite is actually an allulose + monk fruit + stevia blend from the U.S. which sadly isn’t available in the UK. British readers can buy pure allulose from iHerb, although it’s not quite as sweet, so you may need a little more. I also add a little stevia (pure) to intensify the sweetness. Powdered erythritol will work, but isn’t ideal if you want a velvety-smooth jam with no ‘cooling’ taste.

Set the heat to medium-high and keep stirring and squishing the berries with a spatula.

5 minutes later you’ll have a beautiful purée.

Stir in the bloomed gelatine and a touch of vanilla extract, and leave to cool.

If you opt for different berries, use 50% more (to obtain the same yield), cook them for longer and (for a smooth jam) pass them through a sieve to remove the seeds and/or skins.

Transfer your jam to a pretty jar and voilà, Bob’s your uncle.

What Will You Do With Strawberry Jam?

Smear it on buttered bread, such as Lupin Rolls, or Buns. Swirl it into Ricotta Ice Cream or yoghurt. Spoon it on top of Belgian Waffles or Pancakes. Spread it over Cheesecake.

Jam sandwiches are my favourite keto treat. I always keep a small supply of strawberry jam in my cupboard, alongside bread rolls. Then I have an instant sweet snack whenever I feel peckish or I just fancy something sweet.

Sugar Free Strawberry Jam No Pectin

Without preservatives, this isn’t a jam that will last for ages, so it is best to make a small quantity each time. It will keep for up to 10 days in a sealed jar.
