There is so much to love about this strawberry maple jam. There are only two ingredients, both of which are available in my local area. It’s simple to make, it’s healthier than jam with sugar, and it’s delicious.

And in case you’re wondering, the maple flavor does not overpower the strawberries, but remains subtle.
According to Janie Quinn, author of Essential Eating: The Digestible Diet, maple syrup is “the easiest-to-digest natural sweetener because it digests very slowly, thereby avoiding a sugar rush into the bloodstream.”
You could even make your own maple syrup even if you only have a few maple trees.
To make the jam, simply mix 3 cups of strawberries, hulled and quartered, with 1 cup of pure maple syrup. Bring to a boil and simmer until thickened, about 30 – 45 minutes. Cool, and enjoy.
By the way, I’ve also used this recipe to make blueberry jam, and raspberry jam. Each was just as wonderful as the strawberry.
Let me know what you think.
