      Would anyone have a good recipe for a sugar free cherry freezer jam?

      I had seen recipes for sugar-free strawberry jam which included strawberry Jello. Since I was going for a fresh flavor, I decided to try using unflavored gelatin. For the blackberries, a bit less than a packet (a little less than 2 teaspoons) worked well for two cups of blackberries mixed with 2/3 cup of water and sweetener to taste. This produced a little less than a cup and a half of jam, and I liked the consistency. It was a little “bouncy”, and needed to be stirred, but it produced a credible and spreadable jam.

      The strawberries did not come out as well, but it was OK. I used the full packet (a little more than 2 teaspoons) for 1 cup of puree produced by blending 2 cups of chopped strawberries with half a cup of water. The taste was good, and it was spreadable, but the consistency wasn’t quite right. Next time, I might try cooking the strawberries longer.
