Keto-Friendly Strawberry Jam

One of the best things to add to a hot, fluffy biscuit is a sweet jam. This keto-friendly strawberry jam is the perfect addition to your next breakfast!

Simple Keto-Friendly Strawberry Jam

When I was younger, my dad would grow strawberries next to our barn. Each summer, he would pick them and spend a day or two making freezer jam. His jam was the absolute best thing I have ever eaten. It was sweet and utterly delicious on a nice hot, buttered biscuit.

Of course, the jam was chock full of sugar. In fact, that is what helped to make it so wonderful was how sweet it was. As you know, that kind of thing is not part of a low-carb diet. How I wish…

Our friend Wendi over at Loaves and Dishes has a great write-up on the cooking and canning process of the regular sugary jam if you’re interested in seeing how it’s made.

Normal jam recipes call for pectin to be used. Pectin helps to thicken the mixture, resulting in the thick jam you have been used to in the past.

We don’t believe in adding ingredients that aren’t absolutely necessary, especially when trying to eat as clean as possible. Some people may add pectin, but this recipe does not. It is easy to cook and reduce the mixture for the same effect without having to use additives.

Do know, if you taste the jam right after you cook it, it won’t have a very bold flavor. It must have time to cool before the flavor will be fully present.

If you’re wondering how you can eat this jam, it’s super easy. Start with some of our Keto Sausage Gravy and Low-Carb/Keto Biscuits. Then, after you’ve finished the main part of your breakfast, we are going to add the “dessert.” Butter one half of a biscuit and add this jam.

Trust me, it will be good.

There’s not much better than a buttery biscuit and strawberry jam. Don’t believe me? Try it.

  1. can this jam be preserved by a canning method?

    • Logan Childress


      It probably could be, but I haven’t tested it. I would be worried about the sweetener making it taste bad after a period of time.

  2. I don’t have any fresh strawberries,,, can I use frozen?

  3. I just made this strawberry jam like a few hours ago I couldn’t believe how good this strawberry jam is wow amazing I Love it I made peanut butter and jelly sandwiches with coconut flour bread so good Thank you so much!! 😋

  4. Hi! I’m making it now! Should it get as thick as regular jam? Mine just doesn’t seem to thicken up. How long do you cook it?

    • Logan Childress


      It will thicken to an extent, especially when you reduce it down longer on the stove. However, since the recipe doesn’t use pectin, it won’t be as thick and gel-like as its sugar-filled version.

  5. Can I use granulated Monk Fruit Sweetener

    • Logan Childress


      Granulated monk fruit would work, just don’t be surprised if it partially recrystallizes when it cools. The taste will be very much the same, however.

    I was going to make the strawberry pretzel dessert but when I get to this page for the jam the recipe isn’t there. I am on an ipad which may be causing the problem. Could you get it for me? Thanks!

  7. would try if i could print it out

  8. Just found you site recently. Your recipes look really good.
    Can’t wait to make this jam. It looks really yummy. Can this jam be frozen???

    • Logan Childress


      I am sure it can since the kind I am familiar with (pre-keto) is actually called freezer jam. However, I didn’t try it myself so I can’t be 100% sure.
