Sugar free apricot jam is no added sugar fruit jam. Full of flavor perfect for low carb breakfast or keto cakes.
We have our homegrown apricots. This year was definitely a year of apricots. Trees were full of delicious flavorful fruits.
As we have our orchard, we had so much work to do during the summer. That’s why I didn’t have time to prepare this jam immediately. But, I decided just to clean the apricots, remove the stones and leave them in the fridge.
Yesterday I had a little time so I decided to make a jar of keto apricot jam. I can say, it’s delicious! It’s full of flavors and amazing smell.
The same day I had to make keto Sacher cake. Because, if you have this homemade jam, you just need to prepare this cake!
Keto apricot jam is my favorite! I like to put it on a slice of keto coconut bread toast or on a slice of this yummy 90 second keto bread. That’s probably my favorite. Thick layer of grass fed butter and apricot jam on top. Fantastic keto breakfast!
Apricots on keto
Apricots are actually quite low in carbs. In 100 g of apricots there is 9 g of NET Carbs. That’s less than in blueberries! I don’t recommend you to eat apricots everyday. But to put it in keto treats is actually very good.
1 TBS of this jam contains 1.8 g NET Carbs. That’s quite good for a jam! That’s why this jam could be your occasional keto treat.
Keto jams and spreads
I like keto jams and spreads on keto bread. If you wish to try good keto strawberry jam, I have delicious recipe here! It’s perfect on a slice of keto bread or in a cake.
TIP FOR MAKING SUGAR FREE APRICOT JAM
Cook apricots on a high heat and stir for 10 – 20 minutes or until all the water disappears. After that reduce heat and cook it and stir until your jam is thick enough.
Optional addition is to add low carb sweetener of your choice, lemon juice and some grass beef gelatin to make it thicker. On how to properly use gelatin, check this video.
Enjoy your keto lifestyle!
