Strawberry Jam/Compote

image

This delicious sugar-free jam is tart and sweet at the same time. It is thick enough to use on sandwiches, but saucy enough to spoon over ice cream or pancakes. I even enjoy it by itself!

Ingredients:

  • 3 cups frozen strawberries
  • 1 1/2 cups water
  • 1/8 cup honey
  • 1 tbsp. gelatin

Method:

  1. Put the strawberries and water in a saucepan, and sprinkle the gelatin over the water.
  2. When the gelatin has dissolved, add the honey and turn the heat on medium.
  3. Bring the sauce-to-be to a simmer, and turn down to medium-low.
  4. Simmer for 1 hour.
  5. Turn the heat off, and as the jam begins to cool, whisk thoroughly till no whole berries remain.
  6. Cool, refrigerate, and enjoy!

(The natural pectin in the berries will help it to thicken it as it cools, but the refrigeration will get it to a jam consistency.)
