10 Minute Strawberry Jam

I really have missed toast and jam. The odd slice of keto bread toast doesn’t hurt, but the jam is nearly 100% sugar so it’s strictly Nono land. I found this recipe on the net and it’s really easy. With strawberries being in season now and plenty of pick your owns around i think I’m going to make a years supply.

700g Strawberries, hulled*

150g sugar substitute of your choice, you could use slightly less if you don’t want it as sweet.

1 1/2 tbsp lemon juice

1 tbsp Agar-Agar, do not use any more than this, I you want a loser jam use less.

2 tsp vanilla extract

1. Prepare strawberries and cut into medium sized pieces.

2. Put strawberries and sugar substitute in a pot, cover with a lid and bring to the boil.

3. Simmer for 8 minutes, stirring a few times and removing any foam that forms.

4. After the 8 minutes stir in lemon juice, vanilla paste and agar-agar and simmer for another 2 minutes.

5. Allow to cool for about an hour or so.

6. Before jarring break up so it more resembles jam.

7. Store in airtight containers, will keep for 1-2 weeks in the fridge or if put in a plastic container will stir for 1 year in the freezer and will keep for 1 week after defrosting.
* I hulled my strawberries with a drinking straw. Push through from the pointed end of strawberry and push out the stalk, this method is really quick.
