5 Minute Strawberry Jam {Paleo}


A few weeks back, my dad brought home a giant flat of local strawberries~ and I got to work being creative!  The first recipe I shared was for Strawberry Shortcake Muffins (see that recipe here).  I promised that I would be back with another simple strawberry recipe, and here I am!



Today I want to share my really super simple recipe for strawberry jam.  When I say simple- I mean simple.  I promise it could not be easier... it's done in the microwave, cooked for just five minutes, and requires no strange ingredients or slaving over a stove!

This jam can be used in so many different ways.  Spread it over your favorite Paleo-friendly biscuit or bread, put it on top of Three-Ingredient Pancakes (recipe here), or spoon it over sliced bananas with some shredded coconut.  The options are endless!

Let me know if you give this a try!  Hope you love it as much as I do :)


Ingredients:

  • 2 cups fresh strawberries, chopped
  • 2 Tbsp honey
  • 2 tsp lemon juice

Directions:
  1. Place the chopped strawberries in a large microwave-safe bowl, and heat in the microwave for 2 minutes.
  2. Mix in the honey & lemon juice, and mash-mash-mash until combined and a desired texture.
  3. Heat in the microwave for an additional 3 minutes, then transfer to a jar.
  4. Refrigerate until cooled, and serve!
*Store your jam in an airtight jar or container in the refrigerator.





Stay happy & healthy,
