Sugar free jelly recipes using the stevia sweetener

Sugar free jelly recipes with stevia, although certainly feasible, can be hard for a number of reasons. First of all, stevia doesn't have the same preserving qualities as sugar, which means that you shouldn't be storing jams or jellies in the fridge for more than a week. You can always freeze them of course!

 

Second, stevia doesn't "gel" by itself, so you're going to have to add pectin to do the trick for you. Caution: not just any old pectin will do: if you can, try and pick up Pomona's Universal Pectin, which has been proven to gel well with stevia. Pomona pectin comes with detailed instructions on how to use it with stevia. I'll briefly address them here:


First, make calcium water by putting 1/2 teaspoon white calcium powder and 1/2 cup water in a small, clear jar with lid. Store in refrigerator between uses and shake well before using.

For the jelly itself: wash and rinse jars; let stand in hot water. Bring lids and rings to boil; turn down heat; let stand in hot water. Prepare fruit or juice. Measure fruit or juice into pan with lemon or lime juice (if called for in recipe). Add proper amount of calcium water from jar into pan; stir well.

Bring 3/4 cup water to boil. Put in blender/food processor. Add proper amount of Pectin powder; vent lid, blend 1-2 min. until all powder is dissolved. Bring fruit or juice to boil. Add pectin-water; stir well. Add stevia; stir well. Return to boil and remove from heat.

Fill jars to 1/4" of top. Wipe rims clean. Screw on 2-piecelids. Put filled jars in boiling water to cover. Boil 10 min.(add 1 min. more for every 1,000 ft. above sea level). Removefrom water. Let jars cool. Check seals–lids should be sucked down.



As you can see, stevia is the last ingredient to be added to the mix. This is handy because you can taste regularly until you have the right amount of sweet leaf sweetener. Use the above instructions as a base for your sugar free jelly recipes with stevia.
