This Homemade Paleo Strawberry Jam is only made with all natural ingredients. No artificial sweeteners or processed sugar!
David and I were grocery shopping and trying to find a jam or jelly with minimal ingredients that was still paleo, but we could not find one that didn’t have artificial sugar added or a bunch of preservatives. So I thought, why not make my own? That way, I know all of the ingredients that are going in it and can make sure it is all whole foods.
It’s actually pretty simple to make your own paleo strawberry jam. And it tastes better! I love making my own jam. It’s nice to know what all of the ingredients in my foods are. Stay tuned for recipes for all of the paleo jams I have made. I like to put some on some paleo Base Culture bread (delicious) with a little bit of almond butter. Yum!
There is natural pectin from the lemon and strawberries, but this might need to cook for a little bit longer than regular jam to thicken.
- 2 cups strawberries stem removed and halved
- 1/4 cup honey
- juice from 1/2 lemon
In a sauce pan over medium heat, add the strawberries and cook for about 5 minutes, until they have started to break down and gel.
Add the honey and lemon and cook for 10-15 minutes, until the sauce has thickened.
Reduce the heat to low, and simmer for 15-20 minutes, or until the jam has thickened and coats the back of a spoon.
Remove from heat and place in a glass jar. Refrigerate and consume within 3 weeks.
