“How sweet are Your words to my taste! Yes, sweeter than honey to my mouth!” Psalm 119:103
As I pinkie promised yesterday when sharing my Buckwheat “Buttermilk” Waffles, today you see how to make this quick and healthy (and sugar-free) fruit jam. Well, I like a jam anyway. You can also make it more runny to eat as a syrup.
The sweetness of this jam/syrup is largely from the peaches. Peaches? Yes! Blueberries for sure as the main fruit. And a few peach slices are added for a tad more sweet and creamy-ness.
When peaches and blueberries aren’t in season, simply use the frozen variety. Easy to find organic frozen fruit in the freezer case at Wally World. Or if you are really hard-core picky, freeze them from fresh yourself for later. 😉
With only a few ingredients, this recipe only takes minutes to pull together. After boiling much of the water from the mixture, you get a jam texture. For a more syrup-like result, only simmer 5-10 minutes. Then whip until smooth with an immersion blender. If you prefer fruit chunks, shorten your blending time. Me? I like it smooth and creamy, thank you.
Notice how this recipe offers versatility. You could also change things up a bit more by making it with strawberries or blackberries. Your options are many – any berries!
Sugar-Free Blueberry Syrup or Jam
A healthy fruit topping that is sweet and made to your texture preference for syrup or jam.
- 2 cups fresh, washed or frozen & thawed blueberries
- 3-4 slices fresh or frozen peach, pealed
- 3/4 teaspoon THM Super Sweet blend (or 1-1/2 tsp THM Gentle Sweet)
- 1 cup water
Bring all ingredients to a boil in a medium sauce pan. Stir and reduce heat to medium.
Simmer while stirring occasionally from 5 to 15 minutes, depending on your desired thickness of the sauce. Add more water if needed.
Blend with immersion blender (or food processor or blender) until smooth. If you desire chunks of fruit, reduce the blending time.
Pour into a jar, refrigerate, and enjoy! (Lasts up to 2 weeks in refrigerator.)
In the past, I only used Trim Healthy Mama Gentle Sweet* blend as my recipe sweetener of choice. I started using THM Super Sweet* blend a while back because I realized it’s a money-saver. THM Super Sweet* blend is twice as sweet, so you don’t need as much in your recipes. You get double the distance for basically the same cost. Score!
What flavor(s) besides blueberry for your jam or syrup would you like to try? I can’t wait to hear your ideas.
I hope you enjoy the sweetness of today (and this syrup or jam)! 🙂
