last post, I had lots of strawberries, and I wanted to make some jam. Without sugar. But I don't believe in Splenda or all those other artificial sweeteners. I think they're just as bad for you as the real deal, and in my opinion not nearly as good. So I use honey. That is my sweetener of choice. And really, the flavor it adds to stuff, starts to grow on you after awhile. :)
Like this Strawberry Jam. Honestly, I like it far better than regular Strawberry Jam. You know, the jam that calls for 4 cups of Sugar and 2 cups of strawberries...to make 3-4 pints of jam. That's at least one whole cup of sugar, per pint...and only half a cup of strawberries! The suggested serving size for jam, is one Tablespoon. (who actually only uses only 1 tablespoon of jam?) Ok. So...There are 2 cups in a pint, and 16 Tablespoons in a cup. So, there's 32 servings of jam per pint. So let's see...that would make 1/2 Tablespoon of Sugar, and 1/4 Tablespoon of Strawberries. That isn't even one whole Strawberry.
So here's a visual for you...this is what this looks like...in black and white.
Here are some other suggestions for strawberries: Strawberry Salsa, Strawberry Honey Butter
