I thought I’d share this !
As I’m a bit AWOL at the moment..
( i will be back on full force soon , i promise!)
Ive been talking on Instagram on what’s going on and adding a few new “guide” sections on there - with lots & lots & lots of recipes all in handy sections!( it’s worth a look if your on Instagram!
Therd is a little “book” like picture at the top of the grid under my bio .. and I’ve been updating them ( they will come on here soon , but as I’ve had a lot goood , it was worth putting there first as it’s quicker !
Worth a look and a cheeky follow for more ! 👇👇👇👇👇👇👇👇👇👇👇
But in the meantime…
I thought I’d share this as it’s #strawberry picking season again ..
I’ve got a plum one too in my guides 💕
It’s my Keto friendly Homemade strawberry jam recipe with no added sugar
Every year I can remember I’ve gone strawberry picking and made some jam ..
So I made this to go on my @exantediet scone again ( recipe for that is in my highlights or grid)
.And it’s LUSH !!!
AND .. With no added sugar at ALL !!!
400 g chopped strawberries 128 calories 30 g carbs
2 tbsp water
1 tblsp ground chia seeds 60 calories 5g carbs
1 tsp lemon juice (optional)
1 tsp @nkdliving powdered sweetener ( optional) 10 calories 4g carbs
Chop the strawberries and place them in a saucepan together with the water.
Bring to the boil (with lid on )then turn down the heat to medium and let it bubble away gently for 15 minutes. ((Only add the lemon juice if you want to store the jam for longer than 1 week - it prevents the growth of bacteria. ))
Mash the strawberries with a potato masher ,then continue to cook on low-medium for another 30 minutes until reduced by half. You want it to bubble gently . Stir regularly with a spatula to prevent the jam from burning. Towards the end of cooking, stir constantly.
Taste , and If necessary, sweeten with your sweetener of choice.
Add the ground chia seeds from @hollandandbarrett and stir. Cool and fill into a sterilised jar. Store in the fridge.
***I added some @nkdliving sweetener to mine as my husband wanted some of it as he has a very sweet tooth !
My 400g of strawberries made roughly 200g of jam.
I calculated 1 tbsp as 12g for one portion
. So that’s 16 portions for my jar
. Whole jar is 198 calories & 39g carbs
So one portion is 12.3 calories & 2.4g Carbs
Hope you like and I’ll be on more next week ! Xx
