A yummy no sugar added toast topper. The only sugar in this is the natural sugar from the berries. This is NOT something that keeps on the shelf for a year like other jams, this will keep 2 weeks in the fridge, or 3 months in the freezer. From the folks at Equal
- 4 cups fresh strawberries or 4 cups thawed frozen unsweetened strawberries
- 2 cups fresh raspberries or 2 cups thawed frozen unsweetened raspberries
- 1 cup fresh blueberries or 1 cup thawed frozen unsweetened blueberries (4 Cups thawed frozen berry mix, unsweetened)
- 1 (1 3/4 ounce) packageno-sugar-needed pectin
- 3⁄4 cup Equal sugar substitute (I use Splenda)
Directions See How It's Made
- Mash berries by hand or use the food processor to make 4 cups of berry pulp (or just use your thawed frozen berries) Stir in pectin and let mixture stand for 10 minutes, stirring frequently Transfer to a large saucepan.
- Cook and stir over medium heat until mixture comes to a boil.
- Cook and stir for 1 minute more.
- Remove from heat and stir in Equal (or splenda).

- Immediately fill hot jars leaving 1/2 inch headspace.
