No Count Raspberry Jam

This is great on crumpets or toast and is used in some of my dessert recipes too!

Ingredients:

  • 200g frozen raspberries
  • a sachet of sugar-free raspberry or strawberry jelly
  • vanilla essence

Method:

  1. Put the frozen raspberries into a pan and add 200ml water.
  2. Bring to the boil and then mash the raspberries into the hot water.
  3. Add a tsp of vanilla essence and the sachet of sugar-free jelly.
  4. Put into a jar or sealed container and place in the fridge.
  5. The jam will be ready to use the next day.

It can last for a week or two in the fridge.

  1. Made the jam yesterday, done Nicolas recipe, with the summer fruits & blackcurrant jelly
    Had this morning on crumpets, very delicious
    Do you keep in the fridge? & how long can you keep for?
    Thanks for yet another amazing recipe
    So happy I have found this amazing site
    Thanks again
    Have a good weekend

    1. Hi and thank you Jean, I’m glad you like the jam! Yes, do keep it in the fridge where it will last between 1 and 2 weeks. It’s great to hear that the site is helping you out and I hope you have a wonderful weekend too:-) Helen xxxxx

  2. American here — could you explain what sachet means in the context of this recipe? Around here, sachet in a recipe means a cloth bag with herbs, etc. I want to try your recipe because regular jam is just too many points

    1. Hi! I use Hartley’s sugar-free jelly crystals which come in a double packet (sachet). You can buy them on the US Amazon 👍🏻 Hope you manage to get hold of some as the no count jam really is tasty and, as you said, saves you a lot of points too. Helen xxxxxx

      1. Thank you so much for this info! Wish I had it right now because I have these blackberries I’d love to make into your kind of jam.

  3. Hi I made orange jam,/marmalade with orange sugarfree jelly and tinned oranges in juice drained well it was nice but didn’t last as long as raspberry jam x

  4. Made this last night but used frozen summer fruits and blackcurrant flavour jelly. I couldnt wait to this morning to see how it turned out…delish!!! Perfect addition to my breakfast crumpets. Thank you so much!!

    1. Hi and thank you Nicola! I’m glad you enjoyed your brekkie this morning:-) The jam sounds lovely made with summer fruits – it’s really great how so many different variations can be used. Hope you have a fab day ahead, Helen xxx

      1. Helen, have had a great day, out for lunch and normally thats where i fail, but stuck to plan with chicken and baby boils. I was chatting about your Jam and a friend said to me that it maybe pointed as the nature of fruit has changed (stewed in hot water), something similar to fruit smoothies being counted. Please tell me that this is not true. lol. Hope you have had a lovely day.

        1. Hi Nicola, it’s good to hear that you’ve stuck to your plan today and I bet you feel really good about it now – well done! 🌟👍🏻🌟 Don’t worry about the jam – it’s definitely free on no count. You only have to point any fruit that you blitz and drink. 💕👍🏻💕 I’ve had a good day too thanks – I’ve been packing as I’m off to Devon tomorrow for a week (my menu plan is done and coming with me). 😁 Hope you have a fab weekend when it arrives and good luck with those healthy food choices. 👍🏻👌🏻🌟 Helen xxx
