Making homemade jelly is one of the ways my family avoids processed sugar and it's really simple to do.
I add frozen organic berries to a pot with a little spinach or shredded carrots (for added nutrition), along with honey. Simmer for an hour, then blend everything in the pot with an immersion blender. From there, I taste the mixture and add more berries or honey if necessary and simmer longer. If I don't need to add anything, I'm all done!
There's so many things we make with this jelly. Put in a dehydrator for homemade fruit roll ups. Mix with gelatin and make fruit snacks. Mash with half a banana and have strawberry/banana oatmeal. And of course, peanut butter and jelly sandwiches (just mix the jelly with chia seeds for extra nutrition and to thicken the jelly).
Today, I went with a quick and nutritious snack for my kiddos - PB&J Banana Bites...
Have you tried making your own jelly or jam before?
