Eating sugar-free jam can be a godsend if you have type 2 diabetes, are overweight, or have an elevated blood sugar. After all, 'normal' jam is full of sugar.
Half of a regular jar of jam consists of unhealthy sugars. Often is way more than half.
You can of course just buy low-carb jam in the supermarket, but that is often not as tasty as making it yourself. That is why in this recipe I teach you how to make sugar-free jam yourself.
I'm currently writing a blog about all the sugar-free jams you can buy (both online and in the supermarket).
But making jam yourself is of course much better...
...and then you are 100% sure what exactly goes into the jam. You can't say that than the jams that you can buy in the supermarket (such as Walmart, Woolworths and Tesco).
In this recipe I use strawberries. But you can replace the strawberries with any type of fruit you want. Think of blueberries or even ginger.
