Last week I mentioned I would have something to add to the banana bread. Well, here it is! This strawberry xylitol jam recipe was given to me by a patient and whoa am I glad they did. It's super easy and only 3 ingredients and perfect for all things that taste amazing with jam.
1 pint (4 cups) of fresh strawberries
1/4 cup sweetener of choice (honey/coconut palm sugar/xylitol)
2 tablespoons of fresh lemon juice
Slice the stems off the strawberries and put in a food processer/blender until strawberries are almost liquid.
Place in a skillet over medium high heat, then add the lemon juice and natural sweetener of choice. Note: If you use honey make sure it is stirred in. It has a harder time mixing in at the beginning because the consistency of it.
Keep on medium high heat for 10 minutes and stir frequently. It will be bubbly on the top and the jam will start to get a thicker consistency. After ten minutes remove from heat and place in a jar to let cool. Enjoy!
I was amazed how delicious it is! Put over your baked goods, pancakes, banana bread, homemade chocolate, Greek yogurt, or use as a topping for cake.
Ps. It keeps for around 10 days in the fridge in a sealed container.
