Raspberry Fruit Spread without Pectin

I was experimenting with making jam without pectin and it turned out really yummy. You need to cook the raspberries for a pretty long time until they fall apart.

Apricot Lavender Jam

My trick to infuse the lavender aroma into the jam is to process a portion of the sugar with the lavender.

No-Sugar Raspberry Jam

Rating: 4 stars 1
I developed this recipe for a friend who has diabetes. She complained that most diabetic jams had sweeteners added leaving a strange aftertaste. Fresh fruit, when in season, is naturally sweet. To make jam, you don't need to add sugar. A little agar-agar and lemon will help the cooked fruit thicken to make a spreadable fruit for toast, sandwiches, or cheeses. It will last up to 2 weeks in the refrigerator. This recipe will work with all forest fruits.

Spicy Cayenne Tomato Jam

Rating: 5 stars 7
This tomato jam has a sweet and spicy kick that goes great with meats and cheeses. Serve it up with grilled chicken and pork or slather over some crusty baguette with ricotta cheese. Enjoy!

Grapefruit Marmalade

Rating: 4.5 stars 7
Ruby red grapefruit and sugar is all you need to make a slightly bitter, sweet, and tangy marmalade. Try this on toast or, for a twist, use it in any recipe calling requiring orange jam or marmalade. I have used it on meatballs and chicken wings with delicious results. Make sure you use organic grapefruit to ensure an edible zest.
