Jam Recipe without Pectin

Posted by

If you’ve been following or reading my recipes there are times that I do not give exact measurements…well, this is going to be one of those moments.

I used this delicious jam with some Ellenos yogurt…have you had Ellenos yogurt? My favorite Greek yogurt ever! Or, just…you know…whatever you use jam for. I also used this same jam recipe in the Victoria Sandwich cake.

Jam Recipe




  • 2lbs of frozen fruit of your choice, I used strawberry
  • 1 juiced lemon
  • Honey or sugar, to taste
  • Vanilla paste, optional


  1. Add fruit to a saucepan with stove on medium-high
  2. As it is cooking down add the juice of one lemon and your choice of sweetener. How much do I add? Honestly, it’s all by taste.
  3. I also add a touch of vanilla…because I love vanilla paste
  4. Cook the fruit down until it gets to the consistency you want, that’s it!


  • You can use fresh fruit, but you may need to add some water, I like to use frozen because it’s less effort, I don’t have to cut or wash, just open the bag
