Zero ProPoint Jam...

Stuff you need
1 box of frozen fruit
1 sachet of sugar free jelly.
Pan
Wooden spoon
Clean jam jar, or even a a plastic container will do.

1. First put the fruit in a pan and warm on a low heat until it is starting to lose shape.
2. Then mash the fruit using a potato masher.
Nb. My jam has lots of "bits" in it from the seeds. I don't mind this at all, the fibre is good for you but if you hate bits then I think it would be fine to sieve the mixture at this point.
3. Leave the mix to cool a bit then add a sachet of sugar free jelly and mix well.
4. Pour the mix into a jar and place into the fridge to set. It might be advisable to leave the mix to cool if you have a glass jar.
5. Leave in the fridge overnight or for a few hours to set


I got the above recipe from a blog on here.. Which I now can't find!!!
Just wondering if anyone can tell me... Do I need to use the standard block of Hartleys Jelly... OR... Jelly Crystals?????
I made a portion of this on Tuesday but it hasn't set and was just wondering if I done something wrong... Or if I should have used jelly crystals?
Thanks for yer help... :confused:

it won't set if you just put the powdered stuff in as is....

(i had this problem making a cheesecake lol)

You have to mix it with hot water, activates the crystalisation. (i used to used about 1/3 cup boiled water when i made mine and stirred well)

Jelly blocks arent sugar free..

I made this last night (mixed berry flavour). I had some with a toasted crompet this morning and it was yum! But I found the "bits" fell 2 the bottom of the jar leaving mainly jelly at the top but still tasted good.

yes mine set. I bought the individual sachets of sugar free jelly which makes up to 570 ml of jelly per sachet (its powdered). I done everthing the same as the instruction until i had to add the jelly. then i mixed 1 sachet with half a pint of boiling water in a jug before adding to the fruit. Poured it into jars and it set overnight. I hope I've managed to explain everything clearly enough, if you've any more problems with it give me a shout. Happy jam making :D

I added a dash of cold water prob about 20ml. I thought it would make it too much like just jelly if there was too much water

I found this thread earlier on my phone and was soooo excited! I went out and bought 4 mini kilner jars (in B&M). Had a tin of John West strawberries in fruit juice, drained and mashed the life out of them. Made strawberry jelly sachet with half pint of boiling water, added the fruit and a splash of cold water.
They fill the jars perfectly, now to see if it sets and tastes as good as it looks....... (mouth watering......)
Whoever/wherever this came from ~ THANK YOU!!!

OK so 570ml hot water. 20ml cold.. Then add the fruit to the jelly? Or the jelly mix to the fruit??
I added the jelly mix into the saucepan with the fruit kept it on the heat a min stiring to make sure it was well mixed before dividing into jars :)
