'Just tried your strawberry & raspberry jam. Delish. Mmmhh...Interestingly, it was surprisingly sharp on the first mouthful but I believe that is because my brain is conditioned to super sweet 'normal' jam. This was really wonderful! I had it on half a toasted bagel btw. YUM

Cutting sugar does not mean becoming boring
June 06, 2017
Food plays such a big role in our lives when it comes to socialising and showing our appreciation. Children get rewarded with sugary treats, biscuit, cakes, chocolate, you name it. The emotional connection is build in childhood and it can be extremely strong as well as hard to break. Sugar is the 'feel good' ingredient. We feel happy (for a little while) when we get a buzz from eating sugar caused by the spike in insulin in our body. Back in the days, sugar used to be called the 'White Gold' because it was such a precious commodity. Until the 17th century, the average person did not consume more than 4lbs of sugar a year. Yes, you did read this correctly. By the late 18th century, commercial sugar production rocketed and people began to eat sugar as candies, cakes, in beverages such as tea and coffee, among other things. Within the space of 100 years, sugar consumption increased to 90lbs a year per person. The advances in technology in the 1970s meant that refined sugar could easily be extracted from corn and high fructose corn syrup was born. Cheap and cheerful, it made its way into many products that we eat on a daily basis. Our desire for cheap food meant that many companies developed products containing a high level of sugar to cut costs. However, these cheap sugar-laden foods put a heavy price tag on our long-term health and well-being. Sugar remains one of the most heavily subsidised food in both Europe and the US. Today, the average person consumes ca. 75 grams or 19 teaspoons of added sugar each day. The recommended daily intake is about 6 teaspoons for women or 9 teaspoon for men. So there is a significant gap to bridge if we want to turn a corner on obesity, heart disease and even mental health issues. However, a sugarfree life does not have to equal 'no fun'. Once you started looking into options, you will find that there is a lot of good alternatives out there to make the transition easier. I absolutely love the blog by The Sugarfree Londoner (http://sugarfreelondoner.com). Katrin provides a host of recipes on her website that are easy to follow and can be made to feed the whole family. Her recipes are innovative and fun and use ingredients that are natural, have been used throughout the ages. If you are new to this lifestyle or just want some inspiration, then check out her website. I personally love the Paleo bread she made recently as it goes particularly well with our sugarfree jam (http://sugarfreelondoner.com/rustic-paleo-bread-seeds). I would love to hear your comments below on this topic, so please leave a message if you have a spare moment. Loads of love The Jam Goddess
Learning from the best
May 24, 2017
I have a confession to make... I used to be a challenging child. My mother always tells me that my favourite response to any question was always 'NO'. I must have tested her patience thousands of times, I am sure. But luckily for me, parents believe and support their children no matter what. I always aspired to be like my mother who is btw a true master jam maker. After university, I was supposed to work in our family business but it really didn't appeal to me. I wanted to spread my wings and fly the nest so I took off to England and turned my back on Germany. It was easier than having to work for my own family. Many years later, I am still here in England and who would have thought that I would start my own jam business making sugarfree and healthy jams. What I have realised is that we need to honour and respect the wisdom and expertise that older generations have gathered over time. At the same time, it is possible to take that 'old school' knowledge and align it with today's standards. Nutrition is a huge part of my life as I am intolerant to a number of foods. So I was constantly searching for the best products out there. I am a true believer in 'you are what you eat' however, food also needs to be fun and versatile (in my opinion) so it can nurture your soul as well as your body. No one really wants to eat healthy food that does not taste nice, do they? This is what drove me to develop our 'free of refined' sugar range. My mother has been a huge part in this as we were swapping recipes and brainstorming ideas to develop these products. She enjoyed it so much that she is now working on her own range in Germany. As I am writing this, I am forever grateful that I have a pool of wisdom to fall back on. So I am dedicating this blog entry to my mother who has been amazing! Loads of love Corina aka The Jam Goddess
