With just a few ingredients you have made yourself a healthy and quick jam without sugar. Anyone who has already looked for a jam without sugar in the supermarket knows that this is not so easy. Because in every common jam are huge amounts of toxic white domestic sugar, artificial flavors and additives. We show you how you can prepare a healthy and sugar-free jam in just a few steps. For thickening we use Kuzu.
Kuzu is a healthy vegetable binder made from the starch of the kuzu plant. the kuzu plant originated in the Japanese mountains. Today, it also grows in the United States, especially in the South, where it is known as “kudzu.” Kuzu is a centuries-old remedy. It helps you with fatigue and increases your vitality. Kuzu also has a beneficial effect on intestinal health.
Did you know that berries are full of valuable ingredients? They contain plenty of vitamins C and E, which are antioxidants and strengthen your immune system. Blueberries, for example, get their bluish-purple color from the so-called anthocyanins. These plant pigments have strong antioxidant properties and can counteract aging processes as well as be anti-inflammatory. From the end of June to the end of September, this superfood is in season. That means you can enjoy seasonal blueberries all summer long. And if you ever have a craving for berry jam in the winter, we recommend that you freeze a supply of fresh berries in the summer.
You can also modify this recipe and use other fruits for your jam instead of berries. Depending on the size and consistency, you should blend them slightly. Our berry jam is also versatile. You can not only enjoy it on a healthy bread, but also use it as a filling for cakes or as a dessert.
