JUST GOT IN A JAM

I bought 2 punnets of Blueberries on Saturday and had only managed to eat one so I thought I’d make some jam with the other one. I’m going to use this in some fathead danish’s for Easter breakfast.

You can use any berries with this recipe

BERRY JAM

250g berries of your choice

Granulated sweetener of choice to taste, I used a mixture of erythritol (1 tbsp) and vanilla Stevia (5 drops)

3 tbsp water

1/2-1 tsp vanilla extract

3/4 – 1 tsp agar-agar

Put berries, sweetener, water and vanilla extract in a saucepan and bring to the boil stirring occasionally

Allow to simmer for 10 to 15 mins until the fruit is soft and has broken down

Allow to cool for 5 mins

Add the agar-agar 1/4 tsp at a time until you get desired thickness, remember it will thicken up and set more as it cools

Taste and adjust sweetness to your taste with more liquid Stevia if you want.
