still has sugar but...

I like to make freezer jam just mash fresh berries add pack of certo/sure jell(for freezer jam) and I only use about 1/2 to 2/3's of sugar called for in recipie on box we LOVE it because you can actually taste the berries and you can get creative and mix up what ever berries you like best or stick to one.. our fave is Mommy's triple berry jam with raspberries, blueberries and strawberries :)

My kids love waffles and pancakes but the maple syrup we were all using was totally out of control... So I took the above triple berry jam (few spoons) and added A LOT more berries in the blender (more berries no more sugar) until its the right consistancy and tada' Mommy's triple berry syrup less sugar than maple and tons of great vitimins and anti-oxidents you get from all those yummy berries :-)
