Jams jellies and marmalade you buy in a store are delicious. Sadly, they are also packed with added sugars, which are the natural enemies of people on a diet or those suffering from diabetes. If you stick with us, we will teach you how to make a healthy plum jam without using any added sugars. This recipe is super easy to follow along, and the results are remarkable!
Inspired to the classic Italian plum preserve, we made our jam only with ripe red plums - or prunes - apples and lemons. You can spice the jelly with cinnamon, ginger, and star anise if desired.
Ripe plums and apples are a rich source of natural pectin, so we won't need any extra to make this jelly thick and glossy. Also, because fruit contains its own natural sugars, we'll hold on to our sweet tooth without compromising our waistline. Awesome!
So if you were hoping to find a healthy jam or one suitable for diabetics, you are in the right place. We have experimented with different ways to make healthy sugar free jams and compotes.
