Who knew you could make jam without cooking it? That you could set it in the freezer? That it could be such a fun activity?
And that freezer jam is low sugar, with just one-fourth of the sugar and fewer calories than conventional jam (it’s less thick and sticky, too)?
The next time berries or any other favorite fruit are at a good price; pick up four cups’ worth. Then, you just mash it into a purée, mix in the sugar and a special pectin, No Cook Freezer Jam Fruit Pectin.
While we haven’t tried it yet, we’re planning to mix in Splenda and see how we do with sugar-free freezer jam.
See how easy it is in the video below. Try it and let us know how you like it.
