  1. This is my favorite jam! I tweaked it and added 1T lemon juice and 1/4 c erythritol in place of stevia. I love it with strawberries, blackberry, and blueberries combined! The best jam on PD bread!!!

  2. Hi everyone! I’m new to this PD “stuff” and am loving it! I’m wondering how to find the video that is referenced in the comments above? It says it explains what the other Jam is besides strawberry. Do all the recipes have videos? thanks for any help!

  3. I was JUST thinking, it needs to be canned! i am going to get around to trying to do a home canning of this so I can make a bigger batch at once and enjoy through the year. I do it with chutneys, with no preservatives, all the time. it’s pretty easy! Nothing lost in trying 🙂
    Thanks Julie, It looks fabulous!

  4. I am very interested incanning fresh strawberries in different ways to make use of our local berry farm. Strawberries right now, blueberries later. No sugar but ways to keep things without having to rely on the freezer. Any ideas?

  5. Yes, 16 oz is 2 cups. Grocery store strawberries are usually packaged in 16 oz containers. Don’t even have to measure. 🙂

    I made a half batch with some ‘left over, starting to get old looking ‘ strawberries this morning and really liked it.

    Does it freeze well? It’s a great way to use older berries, but I am the only one who will eat it at my house so I hesitate to make a full batch.

  6. This recipe is AMAZING! I made a batch with strawberries for my dad and he LOVED it. He couldn’t tell that this quick, easy homemade version didn’t have any added sugar or preservatives that he’s used to. This could not be any easier!

  7. This recipe is absolutely genius! I love replacing store-bought, processed foods with homemade alternatives, and this does not disappoint. When made in a Vitamix, the jam has a thick, almost gel-like consistency of traditional jellies. I’ve made this several times with variations, and my favorite to date is multi-berry spiced jam (with cinnamon, clove, nutmeg and ginger). It tastes like mulled wine in jam form. Thanks, Julie!
