“BIG J, little j, what begins with J?
Jerry Jordan’s jelly jar. J…j…J..” Dr. Seuss’s ABC’s
Hello jelly jam lovers.
Today I’m going to share a recipe that uses one of the tastiest weapons in the low carb cook’s arsenal: blueberries. I’m going to show you how to make a quick and easy sugar-free blueberry jam.
This recipe is a total yum.
You only need five ingredients to make it, and one of those ingredients is water. Do you even need to count water as an ingredient? Not sure. Let’s move on.
Step 1 of this recipe is to combine 4 cups blueberries, 1/4 cup water, 1/4 cup Swerve and 2 tablespoons lemon juice in a medium sized sauce pan. Bring it to a boil and simmer for 15 minutes, stirring often.
This should thicken the mixture up quite a bit. Thicken it more by sprinkling 1/2 teaspoon Xanthan Gum over the jam and quickly whisking it in. Cook it for 2 minutes more and then you are done.
You’ll have a very tasty blueberry jam with only 2g net carbs per serving.
You can eat it on so many things. I just had a lovely slice of SOLA Sweet Oat Bread toast topped with the jam. (Total net carbs for this snack was 5g.) You could also spread it on homemade low carb waffles, french toast or yeast bread.
So many ways to eat blueberry jam, so little time!
