Sugar-Free Strawberry Jam
"My husband has been a diabetic for almost 20 years and is very careful about what he eats," explains Rita Christ of Wauwautosa, Wisconsin. "He was tired of eating the flavorless jams and jellies for diabetics in the grocery store, so I came up with this recipe. With its fresh flavor, it makes a nice gift."
