Servings 4 x 8oz jars
Calories 37 kcal 2 cups strawberries (400g) 1 cup cold water (250ml) 1 sachet sugar free jello / jelly powder (0.3oz) strawberry flavoured 1 - 2 teaspoon lemon juice optional
Roughly chop up the strawberries and add them to a large saucepan.
Add the cold water to the strawberries and start to warm over a low heat.
Use a wooden spoon or a potato masher to mash up the strawberries a little.
I like to leave some chunks of strawberry intact as I prefer a 'chunkier' jelly but if you prefer a smoother jelly, mash them all up!
Sprinkle over the jell-o powder and stir in well so that it is thoroughly combined.
Add the lemon juice if using.
Turn up the heat a little till the mixture starts to boil making sure that you stir continuously to prevent it sticking to the bottom of the pan.
Once the mixture starts to boil, reduce the heat and slow simmer for 1 - 2 minutes.
Remove from the heat.
Pour into jars and leave to cool thoroughly before placing the lids on.
I would suggest using smaller jars and freezing some as this jelly does not last long in the refrigerator.
Makes approx 4 x 8oz jars.
The jelly does not keep for long so it is best to make up smaller jars and freeze some of them for use at a later date.
