A no sugar grape jelly recipe using unsweetened grape juice and liquid calorie free sweetener instead of sugar. Cuts sugar and calories!
1 envelope unflavored gelatin
2 cups unsweetened grape juice
1 tablespoon bottled lemon juice
1-3/4 teaspoons liquid calorie-free sweetener
Note: Use more or less sweetener, according to taste.
Add gelatin to grape juice and lemon juice in a saucepan. Place over low heat. Stir constantly until gelatin dissolves. Bring to a boil and boil 1-1/2 to 2 minutes. Remove from heat.
Add calorie-free sweetener. Stir well to mix. Pour into clean hot jars. Seal. Cool and store in refrigerator.
This jelly will keep well in a refrigerator 4 to 6 weeks. Do not freeze.
Recipe makes 2 half-pints.
Serving size: 1 tablespoon
Liquid calorie-free sweetener comes in several brands. Wal-Mart carries Fasweet, which works very well. Amazon carries EZ-Sweetz, another excellent liquid sweetener, if you have difficulty finding it at your local grocery or health food store.
Warm your homemade jelly in the microwave for a few seconds and try the following suggestions.
- Use as a sauce over sugar-free ice cream, fruit or angel food cake.
- Serve as a glaze over a fruit tart (brush it right over the fruit for extra shine and sweetness).
- Mix it with peanut butter and serve on whole wheat toast.
- Mix with reduced fat cream cheese and serve on a toasted whole wheat bagel for breakfast.
- Stir 1 to 2 tablespoons into tomato-based chili and tomato sauces - much like you would add a bit of brown sugar to counter the acidity in tomatoes.
- Stir into plain yogurt to add sweetness and flavor.
You can also use these suggestions if your grape jelly winds up a bit runny, which can happen in a no sugar grape jelly.
