There is nothing like the naturally blend homemade jam. With jam recipes however, it is not necessarily mandatory to break the sugar and carb banks. You can go the sugar-free way too if you wish. The jam types we get from the local store are basically sugar but we must admit that for you to come up with a sugar free, low carb jam can be quite hectic. The sugar acts as a preservative in this case therefore coming up with the sugar free recipe, you must think of a way of making it last a little longer without spoiling.
Of all the known fruits, the berries are mostly low in sugar and carbohydrate-content. Talk of the strawberries, blackberries, raspberries among others. Despite being low in sugar, the berries still have an amazing taste that you can enjoy in a low carb diet.
