What’s Inside: This easy strawberry jam comes together in just minutes using gelatin powder and is naturally sweetened with ripe strawberries and raw honey! It’s pectin-free, refined sugar-free, Paleo, and AIP-friendly.
A great way to use up some fresh, seasonal berries is by making jam right at home. It’s very easy and much tastier than anything you can buy (which often contains unnecessary additives, stabilizers, and loads of sugar).
We love strawberries in this house and having so many on hand, I wanted to reserve some for this simple jam made right on the stovetop with a few handy ingredients.

In a small saucepan, stir together lemon juice and gelatin together. Let sit for 2 minutes so it can “bloom”.
Then, stir in honey and chopped strawberries. Cook for 10-12 minutes while mixing/mashing with a wooden spoon.
Let sit and rest off the heat and with an emulsion blender or potato masher, pulse the mixture until no strawberry chunks remain.
Pour the jam in a glass air-tight pint jar (like a mason jar) or a few smaller jars if you’ll divide them. Store the jam in the refrigerator until set (approx. 1 hour), you can use it right away and it will keep for up to 1-month in the fridge. Or, freeze for up to 6 months.
I used this delicious jam for my daughter’s 2nd birthday cake (the recipe I used is here). She absolutely loved it (we all did)!
