Strawberry Jelly has been one of my favorite condiments . The only part which I did not like about it was the high sugar content and less friendly macros .
That’s why I decided to make my own jelly with simple and accessible ingredients which fit most types of diets.
This is the most important part of your Jelly ! Very ripe strawberries works the best because of its natural sweetness and softness.
I picked my strawberries at local Strawberry Picking Farm .
