Homemade Paleo Strawberry Jam without Sugar

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.

 

Just getting started on AIP (or need a refresh)? Here's an easy 1-week meal plan using some of my most popular AIP recipes to make it stress-free and delicious.

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.

How to store homemade Strawberry Jam

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.

  1. Is there anything non-acidic or way less acidic that can be substituted for the lemon? Would apple cider vinegar be a good substitute?

  2. My daughter just loves strawberry anything and this is going to be perfect for her toast in the mornings! I love making homemade recipes, so much better than store bought and better for you! Thanks!

  3. This is a great recipe. I love that you didn’t use sugars but only natural clean ingredients. I will definitely make a few jars of strawberry jam until summer ends. Thanks!

  4. I just made cassava flour AIP pancakes for my mom who is on the AIP diet right now so this is the perfect topping for her stack! I’ve been wondering how to make a decent fruit jam without pectin or chia. Thank you!!

  5. I needed this recipe so badly! I’ve got plenty of strawberries I would like to make some jam with, so this recipe is a saver!

  6. I love making jam but find refined sugar based recipes way too sweet. Whether you are AIP or not, this recipe is perfect who want more berry flavor and less sugar.

  7. We get through a lot of jam in our house, so I am definitely going to try this. So many ways to use it too.
