You can’t tell this sugar free peach mango freezer jam recipe is sugar free! That’s because of my secret ingredient! We LOVE it on pancakes and waffles, but there are endless ways you can enjoy it!
Freezer Jam Was A Revelation
I had never even heard of freezer jam till after I moved to Idaho. I grew up in the Mojave Desert of Southern California. We couldn’t grow gardens because the water was so expensive.
I remember one year my mom decided to grow a garden anyways, and her water bill was wayyyy more than what it would’ve cost to buy everything that she could harvest. So that never happened again.
My mom and I would drool over better homes and gardens magazines, and all the green beautiful landscapes and gardens. So imagine my excitement when I had the opportunity to move to Idaho!
After a few months in Idaho, my sister in-law introduced me to freezer jam… And I was immediately converted! I LOVED how this freezer jam was raw and unprocessed unlike every other jam you could buy. I LOVED that it had almost no sugar in it, and it was so much healthier. Plus this freezer jam is almost all fruit, so it really does count as a serving of fruit. There was no turning back after my that!
My First Freezer Jam
I started out with strawberry freezer jam at first. Darin (my husband) and I had a pretty successful strawberry patch going and were picking them by the gallons.
Our kids watched as I blended the strawberries with lemon juice and Ultra Gel and put it into jars. As soon as they saw an opportunity, they were in the kitchen with fingers and spoons scraping my bowls. And, I couldn’t make enough to last very long because they ate it like ice cream.
A few years later, my moms apricot tree had a bumper crop and she let me use them for Apricot freezer jam. I bottled 50 pints and it lasted a little longer, but everyone LOVED it on their Saturday morning pancakes.
But I still wanted a 100% sugar free recipe! I despise most sugar substitutes, because they’re bad for you…. Till I found these Erythritol granules! I’ve tried so many sugar substitutes, but this one is by far the best! It’s granules are SMALL and easy to incorporate. And, there is no after taste! Even better, it does not make your insulin go up!
Sugar FREE Peach Mango Freezer Jam
Our family has always loved mango’s so that is a natural choice for us. Unfortunately, mangos are always really expensive in our neck of the woods. However, we also LOVE peaches, and have a couple peach trees in the backyard. Peaches and mangos have a similar taste and texture, so this sugar free peach-mango freezer jam tastes like mango freezer jam!
The Easy Sugar Free Peach Mango Freezer Jam Recipe
This freezer jam recipe is super easy to make and pairs perfectly sweet peaches, mangos, lime juice and Ultra Gel with only 1/2 a cup of erythritol. Literally, one of the best sugar free jams ever.
You really can play with all freezer jams made with Ultra Gel thickener… It will thicken without any sugar at all, so you can omit the Erythritol all together if you want.
You can also add more or less of each fruit, as long as you adjust the lemon juice and Ultra Gel to thicken it to the right consistency.
You will need:
- A blender or food processor.
- Measuring cups.
- Lemon or Lime Juice.
- 2 cups chopped mangos.
- 2 cups chopped peaches.
- Erythritol granules to taste.
- Ultra Gel powder.
- Freezer safe jelly jars or storage containers.
You can also make your freezer jam as thin or as thick as you like. Just add or subtract Ultra Gel by 2 tablespoons at a time to get the desired thickness. If it’s too thin, add 2 tablespoons of Ultra Gel and mix or blend well. And vice versa it it’s too thick, then add more lemon juice or fruit till you get a thinner product.
It’s important to remember with freezer jam that this is going to go in the freezer, and may stay there for up to 2 years. So make sure you get some good freezer safe jars or containers that will keep air out, because air will turn the top layer brown. It will still be edible, but you’ll probably want to take that ugly layer off.
If you aren’t already, you’re going to be converted to freezer jam after you try this!
