Jams and jellies are some of the world's most versatile and underrated foods. You can use them on toast, inside a peanut butter & jelly sandwich, or inject them in a doughnut for a fruity surprise. My favorite way to eat jam is on top of a cracker with a piece of white cheese. The sweet and savory flavors blend together so well that I'm getting hungry just thinking about it!
One of my least favorite parts about jams and jellies, though, is all the added sugar. Many popular brands are loaded with sugar that overpowers the fruit's natural taste, making them quite unhealthy in the process. So, how do we get out of this "jam?" By making our own, of course!
I always thought that making your own jam required a lot of time, hard work, and mason jars, but it turns out I couldn't have been more wrong. If you want to make a small portion of jam that'll be eaten over the course of a week, no sealed lids or fancy canning methods are necessary. All you need is some fresh fruit, a bit of lemon juice, and honey. Here, Meg from WhatsUpMoms shows us her favorite jam recipe that is sure to please even the pickiest palate. Simply combine all of your ingredients in a pot, simmer for 25 minutes, then puree in a food processor so it's nice and smooth. Tomorrow's breakfast just got a whole lot better!
