I call this my ghettho jam, (ghetto as defined by the poor, or living the poor life) because it’s my alternative to those expensive “All Fruit” jams you can purchase in the store. Jam companies will charge $4.99 for a small jar of something that is literally, all fruit.
Here is what I do:
- Take a handful of frozen fruit (I used 5-6 very large frozen strawberries for this one).
- Put fruit in small saucepan
- Simmer on low heat. Stir occasionally, breaking up fruit to blend with your spoon.
Really, it’s that easy. The result is so delicious. You can add it to plain yogurt, oatmeal, topping for pancakes or waffles, peanut butter and jelly sandwiches, or spread it on your English Muffins (for E week). Nathan ate his English Muffin before I could snap a photo.
The bottom line: Save your money and make your own healthy jam. No sugar necessary.
