Bing Cherry Jam – Sugar Free

Bing Cherry Jam - Sugar Free on Punk Domestics

 Big beautiful Bing Cherries are everywhere here right now.  They are slightly pricey in my mind so instead of devouring the whole bag………..

I decided to have a little discipline and make some jam so I can enjoy them all year………well at least until I use up this stuff which might not make it to the end of the season!  This is some great jam, and sugar-free?  Love it.

I have never used the Pectin for Sugar Free jams until now and I was really happy with both the taste from the Stevia Powder and the thickness from the sugar-free Pectin.  I’ll try this again with a lot of different fruits now that I know is works so well.

Sugar Free Bing Cherry Jam

Four Cups of Fresh Bing Cherries: Pitted and Sliced

1/4 Cup Stevia Powder

1/4 Cup Water

2 Pectin Packages for Sugar or Low Sugar Jam

3 1/2 Pint Canning Jars

Boil the pitted Cherries, water and Stevia for about 45 minutes at a light boil.

When the fruit is softened, add in the pectin and boil another 2-3 minutes until you notice

the syrup is thickening up.  Remove from heat .

Pour jam into sterilized 1/2 Pint jars, leaving 1/4 inch head space.  Wipe down jar tops well, add lids and water process the jars for 10 minutes.

Remove from water and sit in a draft free area for 24 hours.

Check to make sure that the lids are all sealed before storing.

This jam is sweet and tart, healthy and convenient.  And it was pretty fun to make too.

Give canning a try if you haven’t before.  It’s great to make things yourself and appreciate what you’re eating afterward.

Plus it tastes sooooo  good!

Enjoy!

    How long does the jam keep? I’ve been reading online that when you use stevia it only keeps a few days after the jar is opened but you can freeze it for up to a year.
