Raspberry Jam

Summer is my favorite time of the year. Mostly because I genuinely love the sunshine and the heat, but also because my berry plants come alive!! When we moved into our house three years ago, we had no idea there were any berry plants on the property. Then when summer hit I had strawberries and raspberries coming out of my ears! This season the plants have nearly doubled, and I have more raspberries than I know what to do with. 

I've always been a huge fan of jam. But if you look at the nutrition labels at the store there is SO much sugar I could just never justify it! This jam is the perfect solution. It only has three ingredients, and it's just as sweet as anything off the shelf! 

This jam comes together SO quickly it almost blew my mind. Set aside 20 minutes to whip this up and you're golden! 

INGREDIENTS:

  • 280g fresh raspberries (this can be replaced with any kind of berry, the nutrition will just change slightly depending on what you use!)
  • 2 C Splenda/Sucralose
  • 2T lemon juice

DIRECTIONS:

  • Combine all ingredients in a saucepan and bring to a boil. Take down to a simmer and stir occasionally for 10 minutes. 
  • Transfer into heat safe jar and keep in the fridge! (these also make super cute gifts for friends, family or neighbors! Try putting it in a mason jar with a cute plaid ribbon!)
