This Paleo Raspberry Jam is healthier than a regular jam. It’s tart and sweet, without any refined sugar and all-natural ingredients.
Using apples as thickener
You might think that the addition of apple to this recipe sounds weird, specially because it’s a raspberry jam, not an apple jam.
The addition of apple not only gives some flavor, but also helps to thicken the jam.
Apples are naturally high in pectin, which is used as a thickener in many recipes, such as pie fillings, jams and fruit spreads. So basically, adding apple to this recipe helps -in a natural way- to thicken it.
Ways to use this jam
Apart for using it on top of any paleo bread, this jam can be used in many other ways.
Try it as a cake filling, between layers, or as a cupcake filling -with an amazing pop of color. Try it in between cookies creating the perfect cookie sandwich, spread on top of a muffin, or use it with my Paleo Chocolate Mousse with Raspberry Jam, either way its pretty simple to make and very versatile.
How to store
If refrigerated, this jam should be good for at least 1 week!
