Strawberry Jam

 

4 cups hulled and chopped strawberries

2 teaspoons fresh lemon juice

1 1⁄2 teaspoons Organic Stevia Extract Powder

In a medium saucepan mash strawberries. Remove 1 1⁄2 cups of mashed berries and reserve. To the saucepan add lemon juice, stevia, water and gelatin (or agar powder). Set aside for 5 minutes. Dissolve gelatin over low heat. If using agar powder, bring to a boil, then simmer 5 minutes, stirring as needed. Remove from heat and mix remaining 1 1⁄2 cups mashed berries. Pour into jars and cool to room temperature. Cover and refrigerate.
