Jam is such a staple of our breakfast that it’s hard to give up if you’re trying to lose weight. What if you could make a jam with a third of sugar found in store-bought jam? Well, now you can with our step-by-step recipe for a delicious sugar-free plum jam with no pectin.
Inspired to the classic Italian plum preserve, this recipe is prepared only with ripe red plums and grated apples, then spiced up with cinnamon, ginger, and star anise. That’s it!
As ripe plums, apples, and lemon are all fruits high in pectin, you won’t need any added sugar or extra pectin to make your jam thick and glossy, just a bit of patience to let the fruit cook and release its juices.
NOTE: The default ingredients yield 2 jars of 300g (0.6 lbs) of jam and we calculated that one serving is 30 g (1 oz).
