Low-sugar strawberry jam with Pomona's pectinThis low-sugar strawberry jam recipe is made with Pomona’s pectin and preserves the bright, fresh taste of summer strawberries all year long (without the insane amounts of sugar!) Once you try this recipe out, you may never go back to traditional, sugar-laden strawberry jam again!

* * *

The very first homemade jam I ever made was a classic strawberry jam with standard, store-bought powdered pectin. It called for 5 cups of strawberries and 7 –yes, SEVEN– cups of sugar.

I had just started learning how to can food and jam was an easy beginner project. But I couldn’t get over the fact that there was more sugar than actual fruit in so many recipes!

I quickly switched to pectin-free strawberry jam, which called for 8 cups of strawberries and 6 cups of sugar. Still not great, but at least there were more strawberries than sugar and it eliminated the need for store-bought pectin. This was my go-to strawberry jam recipe for years. It was (and still is) delicious! I especially like it with a little bit of vanilla mixed in since it’s reminiscent of a strawberry sundae. But everything changed the first time I tried making low-sugar strawberry jam with Pomona’s pectin.

This low-sugar strawberry jam recipe calls for 4 cups of mashed strawberries (which is actually around 8 cups of whole strawberries), and just 2 cups of sugar, which is decidedly less than the amount of sugar in my favourite pectin-free strawberry jam recipe.

You can reduce the sugar even more if you like, but I find the ratio of 2 cups of sugar to 4 cups of mashed strawberries to be just the right balance of sweetness without overpowering the fresh flavour of the strawberries in this recipe.

That being said, if you’re looking for a low-sugar strawberry jam recipe with as little sugar as possible, feel free to reduce the sugar in this recipe to as little as ¾ cup of sugar for every 4 cups of mashed strawberries.

 

Can I use regular pectin to make low-sugar jam?

The real trick to making low-sugar jam is in the pectin you use. Unfortunately you can’t use standard store-bought pectin to make low-sugar jam because the pectin requires large amounts of sugar to set properly. Pectin-free jam is similar; You need quite a bit of sugar to get your jam to gel.

But low-sugar pectin is crafted specifically for low-sugar jams, which means you can use significantly less sugar in your homemade jams.

There are a few different brands of low-sugar pectins available, but Pomona’s pectin is by far the most popular choice. It’s the only low-sugar pectin I use, and while it does cost a little more than regular pectin, I’ve had success with it every single time. You don’t even need to do a gel test when using Pomona’s pectin! So long as you follow the directions, in my experience it will set every time, no problem.

 

How does Pomona’s pectin work?

Unlike regular store-bought pectin, Pomona’s pectin calls for the addition of calcium water, which is what activates the gelling properties of the pectin.

Every package of Pomona’s pectin includes both pectin and a packet of calcium powder, which you mix with water before adding it to your homemade jam.

Extra calcium water can be stored in the fridge for months, or can be frozen for long-term storage so it doesn’t go to waste. I just made a fresh batch of low-sugar strawberry jam with some calcium water I’ve had in the fridge since last summer. When you’re ready to use it, just pull it out of the fridge and give it a shake, or defrost it first if stored in the freezer.

When it comes to the actual pectin, one important difference between Pomona’s pectin and standard powdered pectin is that Pomona’s pectin needs to be mixed with the sugar BEFORE being added to the fruit mixture. This is because Pomona’s pectin is pure pectin, whereas other brands are usually mixed with dextrose. This makes Pomona’s pectin extra potent, which means it will clump quickly and easily if added directly to your fruit/jam mixture while cooking.

I’ve messed this part up a couple times and regretted it each time. Last time I made a red berry jam and added the pectin directly to the mixture as it was cooking. I ended up with hard clumps of pectin throughout the jam. While the jam is still delicious and totally edible, I find myself having to pick out the lumps of pectin when I spread it on toast, etc.

When you add the pectin to the sugar first and mix it thoroughly, it incorporates it into the jam better and lumps and clumps are no issue.

This is what Pomona’s pectin calcium water looks like once it’s mixed up. It will store in the fridge for up to about a year.

Do I have to do a gel test when using Pomona’s pectin?

One of my favourite things about using Pomona’s pectin is that you don’t need to do a gel test to ensure your jam or jelly has set before canning. While it is possible to have jam that fails to set when using Pomona’s, it’s much less likely than when using standard powdered or liquid pectin, which I always find to be hit and miss.

I’ve never had a problem with my low-sugar jams setting and gelling when using Pomona’s pectin, and I’ve never had to do a gel test. So long as you follow the directions and use the correct amount or of ingredients, you should have no problem either.

 

Can I use honey in place of sugar in low-sugar jam?

Yes! You can substitute honey for sugar if you prefer. If using honey, you can use as little as ½ cup of honey or up to 1 cup of honey to sweeten your jam. (Honey is naturally sweeter than regular sugar, which is why you can use even less).

The thing about honey is that it’s expensive. And when you heat the honey up to a boiling point during the canning process, you destroy any of the naturally occurring health benefits that are present in raw honey. So I usually don’t bother using honey in my canning recipes. The one exception being my home-canned peaches with honey, but in this case I prefer the flavour of honey in the syrup.

The choice is yours though! If you’re looking to eliminate refined sugar altogether, you can absolutely use honey in this recipe instead.

You can also use agave syrup in place of sugar. Just use it as you would use honey in this recipe.

Can I double this recipe?

Yes! Feel free to double the recipe for a bigger batch. I’ve doubled this recipe many times and had no problem, however tripling is not recommended as results can vary when tripled. Plus, you need quite a large pot both to cook the jam and to can it if doing large batches, so stick to small batches for best results.

 

Can I freeze this jam instead of can it?

While I haven’t personally tried converting this recipe to a freezer jam recipe, you can turn any low-sugar jam recipe made with Pomona’s pectin into a freezer jam recipe instead of canning it. Just follow the recipe until the point where you transfer your jam into jars. Then let it sit at room temperature until it has cooled completely before storing in the freezer.

You may want to leave a little extra room at the top of your jars too, just in case your jam expands a bit in the freezer.

All of this being said, this is a really easy recipe to can and you don’t need much in the way of tools. Plus, your jam will be shelf stable and won’t take up precious freezer space. If you’re new to canning, check out this post on water bath canning for beginners for everything you need to know to get started.

 

Can I make this jam with frozen fruit or do I have to use fresh fruit?

One of the great things about jam is you can make it with either fresh or frozen fruit. Since Pomona’s jam calls for mashed fruit, it’s even easier to measure out the exact amount of mashed strawberries whether using fresh or frozen. If using frozen strawberries, simply defrost them first and then mash them up. Just be prepared for your hands to get cold while mashing them, or use a potato masher instead!

How long will this jam last on the shelf?

Once canned, this low-sugar strawberry jam will store on your shelf for up to a year.* 

  • I use an asterisk because this is a very loose recommendation. In reality, most homemade jams are still totally edible beyond the one-year mark, however you may notice the quality begin to degrade. The jam may begin to separate, leaving a bit of liquid at the top, or it may begin to go off-colour. 

Since this is a low-sugar strawberry jam recipe, it’s very normal for the jam to start off bright red and then turn brown in colour as it ages. It’s still perfectly safe to eat and still tastes delicious!

You may also notice a bit of white film on the top of your jam. This is most likely just a but of foam from the jam and is completely harmless. If it looks and/or smells moldy though, it’s best to toss it out. Always be sure to wipe jar rims before placing your lids on and remove the bands from your jars once they’ve cooled to ensure they have actually sealed and to prevent mold from growing.

 

What tools and equipment do I need to can low-sugar strawberry jam?

If you’re ready to can up some low-sugar strawberry jam, you’ll of course need some strawberries! As I mentioned earlier, you can use either fresh or frozen strawberries. I always recommend using organic fruit for jam because personally I like my jam without a side of pesticides. I also purchase strawberries locally and in-season as these strawberries will yield the best flavour. But you can technically use any strawberries you like.

You’ll also need some Pomona’s pectin. You can order some here if you can’t find any in your local grocery store.

As for canning tools and equipment, you can check out a full list of everything I use and recommend right here, but in short you’ll need a water bath canner (or a large stockpot with a rack in the bottom), jar lifters, a canning scoop (or large soup ladle), and a canning funnel.

This canning set has everything you ned to get started, including a 7-quart canner and all of the canning tools you’ll ever need.

You’ll also need jars and lids. Only use approved Mason jars for canning. Do not reuse jars from the store because they do not fit proper canning lids.

Most importantly, you need to use new canning lids every time you can. You can reuse the bands (also known as rings), and/or you can purchase reusable canning lids. But if using standard metal canning lids, they are only made to seal once, so you need to use new ones every time you can food.

I love Denali canning lids. They’re super durable and have an excellent seal rate, and you can purchase them in bulk and save money. Denali also sells water bath canners and other canning supplies. Check out everything Denali has to offer right here.

Low Sugar Strawberry Jam with Pomona's Pectin

Yield: 4 to 5 eight ounce jars

This low-sugar strawberry jam recipe is made with Pomona's pectin and preserves the bright, fresh taste of summer strawberries all year long (without the insane amounts of sugar!)

Ingredients

  • 4 cups mashed strawberries
  • 2 cups sugar
  • 2 tsp Pomona’s pectin
  • 2 tsp calcium water (See note below)

Instructions

  1. Prepare canner, jars and lids.
  2. Prepare and measure out 4 cups of mashed strawberries and add to a large stainless steel bowl.
  3. Add the calcium water and stir well to combine.
  4. In a separate bowl, add the pectin to the sugar and mix well to combine.
  5. Bring mashed strawberries to a boil and add the pectin-sugar mixture. Stir to dissolve and continue stirring until the mixture returns to a full boil. Boil, stirring constantly for 2 minutes. Then remove from heat.
  6. Ladle hot jam into prepared jars, leaving ¼ inch headspace.
  7. Remove air bubbles and adjust headspace as needed. Wipe rims, place lids on top and screw down bands.
  8. Place jars in canner and ensure they're completely submerged in water before placing the canner lid on. Bring water to a boil and process for 10 minutes. (If you're above seas level, adjust time for altitude by adding 1 minute for every 1,000 feet above sea level.)
  9. Once time is up, turn off the heat, take the lid off the canner and set the timer for another 5 minutes before removing jars from the hot water. Once 5 minutes is up, remove jars from the canner and let them cool on the counter completely before storing in a cool, dark place.

Notes

Each box of Pomona’s pectin comes with a packet of pectin and a packet of calcium powder. To make the calcium water, mix 1⁄2 tsp calcium powder with 1⁄2 cup a water in a small glass jar and shake well to combine. (I use a 4oz jelly jar). Extra calcium water will store in the fridge for months, or can be frozen for long term storage and thawed to make future batches of jam.

For Mother’s Day this year, my husband is teaching our daughter to empty the dishwasher on her own. It may seem like a small feat, and for anyone who has kids who already do this and more, this may seem like nothing to celebrate. But for all of the moms who understand how much quicker and easier it is to just “do it yourself,” slowing down and allowing our daughter to take ownership of this even if it’s not perfect or takes twice as long is a huge milestone, both for her and for us as parents!

While it may sometimes feel like the work that we do day in and day out is just mundane and repetitive, the way we show up every day over many years with our children will have a huge impact on the type of people they’ll grow up to be.

What we teach them—the skills we pass on and the values we instil—will help to shape who our children become as adults, and who they become as adults will help to shape what our future world looks like.

It may seem as simple as emptying a dishwasher, but what this really symbolizes is that we’re raising a capable human being who takes responsibility for contributing to our household and is a valued member of our family. And since she will someday grow up to run her own household, possibly be a mother herself, and contribute to our future society, that means that we, as parents, (and especially us moms!), have immense power to shape what the future looks like through the simple actions we take every day to teach and empower the next generation.

All of that to say, thanks for everything you do moms! You are more valued and powerful than you know.

Happy Mother’s Day, and may someone else be doing the dishes for you today!

Me shopping for Easter candy for my kids, and walking out empty handed because it’s all full of absolute garbage!

I don’t mind my kids having sugar now and again, but I draw the line at food dies, seed oils and artificial ingredients. (Or at least, I try!)

Hey, we’re not perfect, and yes, our kids will get Easter candy on Sunday morning. Ryan has already bought some and I’m sure he didn’t check all the ingredients like I do! I’m fine with the 80/20 rule most of the time. But the meta question here, is why are these types of ingredients allowed in foods to begin with? Especially food marketed toward kids!

Yes, it’s “junk food.” I don’t expect it to be HEALTHY. But it could be made better by omitting the known carcinogenic ingredients that have been linked to everything from ADHD to hormone imbalances to cancer!

Folks, we must demand better. We DESERVE better, and so do our kids.

We said goodbye to a family pet yesterday. My mom has had Zoe since I was a teenager, and Evelyn has grown to love her during her visits with nanny.

It’s never easy to say goodbye to a family member, human or furry. But we don’t shelter our kids from death either. Evelyn was with us when we found our rabbits dead. She went with my mom to say goodbye to her other cat a year ago. And she knows where the chickens go when it’s their time.

Having a healthy relationship to death is important. It is, after all, the only certainty in life.

Today Ryan is heading down to clean out his dad’s place after he passed last week. They had a strained relationship, so our kids never knew him as their grandpa. But still, it’s never easy.

It does, however, teach us to be grateful for every day we’re alive, and to appreciate the ones we love while we’re still together, because you never know how much time you have left.

RIP Zozo ❤️ See you over the rainbow bridge 🌈 🐾

When I first started homesteading, gardening, and trying to be more self-sufficient, I had no idea what I was doing. Everything was new to me, and I had no one in my life to teach me the ropes.

I’m not a second or third or fifth generation homesteader. I’m a born-and-raised city girl who had to figure it out on my own, using books from the library and resources from the internet, and advice from random strangers on social media.

While these free resources have taught me a lot, I’ve also come across lots of bad (or just wrong) advice online, and sadly, I’ve dealt with a jerk or two in the comments section of public Facebook groups.

Eventually I did invest in online mentorship and my success from there was exponential. Now, less than a decade after leaving the city in pursuit of our new life as homesteaders, I’ve not only learned how to grow an abundance of food and troubleshoot all kinds of plant issues to ensure a healthy crop and successful harvest, but I’ve learned how to be more self-sufficient in just about every area of life.

I’ve learned how to
🌱 grow my own groceries
🫙 can and preserve my own food
🌿 make herbal medicine and natural products
💵 create multiple income streams
🆘 prepare for a wide range of emergencies
and more.

Plus, with my husband’s help, he can also
🛠 fix or build most things
so together we’ve got a wide range of skills that allow us to live a more empowered, self-reliant life.

Now I want to help you do the same…

I recently reopened the doors to The Society of Self-Reliance—my private membership program where I teach you the skills and mindset you need to become more self-reliant in every area of your life.

Not only do you get access to nearly 150 step-by-step video tutorials (and counting), you also get monthly live group coaching calls with me, and access to a private, SUPPORTIVE and knowledgeable online community of likeminded folks on the same journey.

For a limited time, you can join The Society for just $20/month (or get two months FREE with an annual membership!).

Come, join a community of people who will lift you up and ensure you DON’T starve 😉

Never before have we had access to so much information at our fingertips. Whether you have a question you need answered, are looking for a tutorial to walk you through a specific task or are searching for a recipe to help you figure out what to make for dinner, all you have to do is Google it.⁣

But the problem is that there's no real way to be sure whether the information you find on line is genuine. Is the person who wrote or shared it actually sharing their own experience, or are they too simply regurgitating answers that they Googled?⁣

As we barrel full speed ahead into the era of AI and deep fakes, it will be even more difficult to know whether the information you're getting is even from a real human!⁣

While it's definitely an exciting time to be alive, so many people are feeling overwhelmed, and are craving a return to the analog world; To a world where information was shared in the pages of trusted books and publications, or was passed on from human to human, from someone who held that knowledge not because they Googled it, but because they lived it, experienced it, even mastered it.⁣

That what sets Homestead Living magazine apart from much of the information you'll find online: We don't have staff writers, we have experienced homesteaders sharing their hard-won wisdom in each issue. And while we do offer a digital version, we're also now offering monthly PRINT issues for U.S. subscribers (Canada and elsewhere hopefully coming soon!)⁣

Plus, until the end. of January, you can get your first 12 issues of Homesteading Monthly for just $1.00!⁣

No matter where you are on your homesteading journey, if you've been feeling overwhelmed with the sheer volume of information and the noise of the online world and have been craving a return to the real, the tangible and, quite frankly, the human, Homesteading Monthly was made for you. ⁣

For homesteaders, by homesteaders.⁣

When I graduated from university with a degree in journalism many years ago, I remember thinking that while I knew how to write, edit, interview, shoot, and handle just about every part of creating a publication from the editorial standpoint, I really had no clue how to actually get published, let alone how the printing process works.

Over the years I’ve followed my passion for writing, editing and creating content, figuring much of it out on my own. From creating my blog to “self-publishing” my own digital/print magazine for the last 4 years, I’ve taught myself most of the practical skills necessary for turning an idea into a publication and getting said publication in the hands and in front of the eyes of many hundreds of readers.

But now that I’ve joined forces with the team at @homesteadlivingmagazine and @freeportpress, we’re all able to level up and reach many THOUSANDS of print and digital readers together.

People are HUNGRY for tried and tested advice on homesteading and self-reliant living. There’s a huge movement happening right now as more people wake up to all of the corruption in the world and realize that many of the systems we have come to depend on are fragile and on the brink of collapse. People are ready to take matters into their own hands by growing their own food, preparing their own meals, becoming producers instead of merely consumers and taking control of their health, freedom, security and lives.

I’m so proud to not only be a part of this movement, but to be at the forefront of it with some of the most passionate, talented and driven individuals I could ask to work with.

Getting to meet and brainstorm with some of the team in person and tour the printing facilities over the last few days has opened up a whole new world of possibilities, not just for me, but for everyone who considers themselves part of the modern homesteading movement. We are growing faster than I could have ever imagined. We’re creating a system outside of the system! We’re charging full steam ahead and we invite you to climb aboard and join us for the ride:)

It’s been a minute since I popped into IG to say hi. (Hi! 👋) But before I share what’s been going on behind the scenes, I thought it would be a good time to (re)introduce myself, because I’ve never actually done that before!

My name’s Anna, and I’m a city girl turned modern homesteader living in the beautiful Comox Valley on Vancouver Island. I live with my family (human, furry and feathered) on 1/4 acre property where we grow and preserve hundreds of pounds of our own food every year, and strive to live a more self-reliant lifestyle in all that we do.

I grew up in Vancouver and had pretty much zero experience homesteading before my husband, Ryan and I decided we wanted to escape the rat race, become less dependent on the modern industrial food system (and all modern industrialized systems), and dove head first into this lifestyle around a decade ago.

We packed up and moved to Vancouver Island where we live now, started our first garden, and the rest is pretty much history.

(Well, actually that’s not true… There have been A LOT of ups and downs, successes and failures, wins and losses, struggles, challenges and pivotal moments along the way, but those are stories for another day).

Over the past few years, our decision to follow a less conventional path that aims to break free (at least in some part) from “the system” has been affirmed over and over again. We all know for a fact now that our food system, healthcare system, financial system, transportation system and so much more are all really just a house of cards built on shaky ground. We’ve been lucky so far, but sooner or later it’s all liable to collapse.

But preparedness and security isn’t the only thing that drives us… The peace of mind I get knowing that everything we grow is 100% organic, and that the ingredients in our food, medicine, personal and household products are safe and natural is worth more than anything I could buy at the grocery store.

(I’m not perfect though. Not by a long shot. I still rely on the grocery store, on modern medicine, and on many modern conveniences to get by, but I balance it as much as I can:)
