I found this recipe I take no credit in it, I just found that this app was missing a good Jam Recipe. ENJOY

Crush your fruit either by hand or use your food processor. You want the fruit to be broken down but still a little chunky.

Place a small plate or saucer into your freezer (for testing).

Put all the ingredients into a heavy pan and bring to a boil. Turn down the heat to the lowest setting so the jam is just bubbling, then let it cook until the mixture starts to thicken. This can take anywhere from 15 to 50 minutes, depending on how much juice you have from your fruit, so just leave it to bubble away and check it every once in a while.

When you think it\’s ready, take the plate out of the freezer and drop a little jam onto it. When it cools you will be able to test the thickness with your finger. (Getting to lick your finger is one of the perks of making jam!)

Once the jam is finished, pour into small glass jars leaving room at the top for expansion, then cover and refrigerate until needed. You can also use plastic freezer containers but if you do, let the jam cool first before pouring into the container.

Because this jam is all natural ingredients, it will only keep in the fridge for a week or two, so if you\’ve made more than you and your family can eat in this time, just leave one container in the fridge and put the rest in the freezer.

    Awesome. My husband JUST asked me last night to find a paleo jam for him. Perfect timing!

    Can you use agave nectar instead of honey? Honey gives me heartburn. What other sweeteners would you suggest?

      Maple syrup is usually also a good alternative to honey.

    Agave nectar can be used in jams. I just preserved peach butter and it was fabulous.

    I didn’t have 4 cups of the same berry so I am trying this with 4 different berries that I picked up at the farmers market yesterday. I plan on also making some super-quick bread from a recipe in Tammy Credicott’s new book Paleo Indulgences, page 42. Sounds like an awesome treat!

    That.

    Great recipe. I put a teaspoon of jam in Greek yoghurt and it’s fantastic. I use st daflours at the moment which is almost paleo.

    I will try it soon :)

    Be careful with agave, it’s sweeter so you need less.
    And I put jam or marmalade on coconut sweetbread, or muffins. :)

    QUESTION: you cant can/jar this?? I want to make some to store in a glass jar, but you cant put glass in the freezer, can you?? Any tips would be helpful!

    You can put glass in the freezer just do not fill to the top. And glass should be fine in the freezer. Just don’t change the temperature rapidly from hot to cold or vice versa.
