Sugar free berry jam

    2 hours 50 min

    Fresh fruit, when in season, is naturally sweet. To make jam, you don't need to add sugar. A little agar agar and lemon will help the cooked fruit thicken to make a spreadable fruit for toast, sandwiches or cheeses. It will last up to 2 weeks in the fridge. This recipe will work with all forest fruits.

    2. Heat raspberries in a saucepan over medium heat until raspberries start to break up, 5 to 10 minutes. Use a potato masher to crush raspberries; turn off the heat.
    3. Stir thickened lemon and agar paste into the saucepan with the raspberries and mix well. Allow to cool to room temperature, about 30 minutes. Pour into an airtight container and refrigerate until set, about 2 hours.
