Yum Strawberry Jelly

Strawberries are one of the easiest fruits to maintain in the garden, and are so delicious! This beautiful, edible ground-cover plant can survive in very small spaces and in a variety of climates. Because of the use of low-glycemic, sugar-free sweetening, combined with the naturally low carbohydrate density of strawberries, this delectable dessert is diabetic-friendly!


  • 4–5 cups strawberries, fresh or frozen
  • ½ peeled lemon, seeds removed
  • ½–1 tsp lemon zest
  • ½ tsp vanilla extract
  • 2 tsp powdered New Roots Herbal Stevia Sugar Spoonable
  • ¼ tsp blackstrap molasses
  • pinch Himalayan salt
  • 1½ cups water
  • ¼ cup agar agar flakes


In a high-speed or regular blender, purée the strawberries with the lemon juice and zest, vanilla, sweetener, molasses and salt until smooth and set aside. In a medium saucepan over high heat, bring the water with the agar agar flakes to a boil, then soft-boil for 4–5 minutes, stirring constantly, until the agar agar is dissolved. Remove from the heat and add the strawberry purée to the saucepan and stir to combine. Pour into silicon gelatin moulds or beautiful glassware and chill in the refrigerator until set. If using moulds, remove from the refrigerator just before serving and invert onto dessert plates. Enjoy as is or garnish with seasonal berries, mint leaves or your other favourite toppings. Makes about 5 cups.
