After spending too much money on store bought sugar free jams, I was given this recipe by a friend. It tastes better than most you find in the store, and is much cheaper. I use granular splenda, and don't measure it, I just add until it tastes sweet enough.


  1. Thaw strawberries.
  2. In a bowl, soften gelatin in 2 tablespoons cold water.
  3. If your strawberries are whole, crush them, or chop into small pieces.
  4. Place strawberries into a heavy sauce pan, along with any any juices.
  5. If they don't have much juice from thawing, add 1-2 tablespoons water.
  6. Bring to a boil, reduce heat and simmer until strawberry pieces are softened.
  7. Stir in softened gelatin until completely dissoved.
  8. Remove from heat and stir in Splenda.
  9. Chill well before serving.
  10. Note: do not add too much water along with the strawberries, they will probably release enough moisture while heating.

This was fantastic!! Easy to make and my grandkids loved it, especially my 5 yo granddaughter. It sets up more like perserves than jam which we like. I have to live low carb for life and this will help me when I just "have to have it!!" Thanks so much!
