Homemade Strawberry πŸ“ Jam without pectin. πŸ˜‹β€οΈπŸŒΊ

Hello everyone, hope you have a wonderful day ahead! πŸ€—

Like many of us, I love fruity jam but I don’t like the amount of sugar they put in from supermarkets. I make my own jam for my oatmeal and toast from time to time. What I like about homemade jam is I can use half the amount of sugar, add my organic fruits and lemon juice to my jam.

Today I made strawberry jam. πŸ˜‹

I tried the oven heat sealing technique instead of water boiling technique (less messy and burnt πŸ˜…). You will just need to boil the rubber lid in water and dry with paper towel. It worked out wonderfully.

2 cups of mashed strawberries will fill one 16oz mason jar. I used 1 cup of natural organic sugar and one juicy lemon from my garden. Everything is organic and fresh. I don’t make many because I want to make different type of jams such as: peach, apricot, figs so I will finish this first. πŸ˜πŸ‘

It’s easy to make your own favorite jam, so put on your best track of music, jam with your songs πŸŽΆπŸŽΌπŸŽ΅πŸ’ƒπŸ•ΊπŸΎ and make some jam! πŸ˜‡

As always, be inspired, be joyful, take a picture and Enjoy it! πŸ˜‹β€οΈ

That looks scrumptious!! 🀀🀀🀀yummm

Awe thank you Kainan. πŸ˜ŠπŸ™

Are you gonna make some jam after reading koko’s post? πŸ˜‚

I just might. strawberry is one of my favs

Yes you can make any of your fav fruits into jam. The only thing is you gotta watch and stir, can’t distract yourself with anything else. πŸ˜‚πŸ˜…

yeah haha that would be where my mindfulness training comes in 🀣🀣🀣 I don't spend all that much time for nothing XD

Definitely some mindfulness meditation right there πŸ€£πŸ˜‚πŸ€£. You can sing if you want πŸ˜‚

I'd rather not πŸ˜…πŸ˜…

Ok dance then, whatever floats your boat πŸ™ƒ

If I do that I'll knock it over. Not really mindful now is that? 🀣🀣

See you gotta up your game. I have Sonya she’s my dance partner and my side kick too. Everything is under control. You can meditation in style πŸ˜‡

that's something else. Maybe I get there eventually πŸ˜…πŸ˜…

Oh yes Kainan with this speed, you will get to koko status πŸ˜‚πŸ€£πŸ‘

Hey Koko, your home made strawberry jam looks and sounds wonderful to me as I love home made conserves and avoid the supermarket ones with HFCS and artificial sweeteners.

I buy Jams that are made to a traditional French recipe using no added sugar, so they are sweetened with vineyard ripened grape and fruit concentrate only.

So thank you for sharing your method as it inspiring and I do agree play your fave music and enjoy making something healthy and enjoyable is a commendable way to spend some leisure time, as it’s positive and rewarding so top marks from me and enjoy your delicious strawberry jam. πŸ“ πŸ˜€

Hi Jerry, thank you for saying this, I appreciate your encouragement very much and grateful to be in HE, raising my awareness for healthy body and mind. πŸ˜ŠπŸ™

Thank you for sharing your jam source, absolutely brilliant without added sugar with fruit concentrate only. I look up for some and I will try my new discovery St. Dalfour strawberry jam coming soon. πŸ˜‹πŸ‘

I absolutely love relaxing in my kitchen and making homemade healthy food just like many members in HE here. You are my inspiration also Jerry! πŸ€—πŸ™

P.S. I am going gluten-free now as I discovered many things tied to my headaches and eczema. πŸ˜…

Have a wonderful rest of the day! πŸ˜ŠπŸ™πŸŒΊ

Thank you Koko as I think that we all inspire one another’s with our passion for healthy eating. I love foods from others, other countries so I love some of your meals.

This is so interesting about going gluten free to relive headaches and eczema and wondered if you’ve been tested for DH :

celiac.org/about-celiac-dis...

Gluten affects many people and in many ways especially as we have new dwarf varieties that are very high in gluten!

You take care now Koko and it’s thanks to yours and all our members contributions that make HE what it is and that’s a factβ€¦πŸ˜Š

Hi Jerry, I did get tested and confirmed it is not DH but eczema. There’re no bumps or blisters with my red, itchy patch and they go away after my cream but come back from time to time.

I had wheat toast with peanut butter and it might be the cause my migraine came back last night. I will eliminate wheat from my diet from now on.

Thank you Jerry for raising my awareness. πŸ˜ŠπŸ™

Have you tried chia jam at all? I make it every so often for something to have with breakfast, if I don't fancy the sugar crash :)

I've only tried blueberry so far, but it's delicious! It keeps for about a week :)

I couldn’t wait, I just made it and recommended to my friends also. We love this kind of snacks πŸ˜πŸ‘πŸ‘

I make it with raspberries. I rarely use it so just make enough that I need, no trouble at all just moments in the microwave and left to cool. The chia look like raspberry pips :)

Yes this looks great. Much better than store bought and healthier. Good to see you are jamming while you make jam😁. I look forward to seeing all your future jams as well. Have a great day!πŸ€—β˜―οΈπŸŒˆ

Awe thank you Zazen, it is very kind of you to say this. πŸ˜ŠπŸ™

Yes I know you like jamming your songs but do you jam? πŸ€¨πŸ˜‚πŸ€£

Have a blissful day also ZR! πŸ€—πŸ™πŸŒΊ
