Strawberry Date Jam

FavoriteLoadingAdd to favorites

Making your own raw jam is easy peasy!  This recipe is wonderful to spread on; raw crackers, breads, spread in between cake layers or on brownies.  This would also be wonderful spread on the banana crepes!  I can’t express enough to make sure that you purchase only organic strawberries.  They are one of the top rated fruits on the “Dirty Dozen” list, meaning that they are high in pesticides when you don’t purchase organic.

Ingredients:

Preparation:

  1. In your food processor or blender combine the two ingredients and blend till nice and creamy.  Or you can stop it sooner if you want a more chunky style.
  2. Store in glass containers in the fridge for 1-2 weeks

Equipment Needed: (my personal recommendations)

    Is there a replacement for dates? They are so high in sugar, which I have to watch due to fructose malabsorption. Can you use Irish moss? What about Goji Berries?

      Hello Chris,
      Yes you could replace the dates with your preferred sweetener. What do you use? It depends on it’s form as to how you tweak the recipe. And yes you can use Irish moss. I have made raw jams that way, using anywhere from 1/4 – 1/2 cup of Irish moss gel. amie sue

    Hi,
    I was curious about replacing the fruit in the recipe – as strawberries are out of season (and pricey right now) I have a bunch of frozen blueberries I would love to make into jam, would the ratio of fruit to dates need to change at all?

    I was browsing your other recipes and saw you had a few that can use fresh or frozen blueberries, but that they all involve chia seeds which I can’t have unfortunately, and I was interested in the simplicity of this 2 ingredient recipe :)

    Thanks!
