I have recently been diagnosed with Type 2 diabetes and my wifes friend was going to make me some homemade strawberry jam but she's not sure how to do it sugar free.

Does anyone have any recipes they might be able to share? It would be greatly appreciated..

She needs to buy the no-sugar pectin products that are available in supermarkets or hardware stores. (Sure-Jel is one brand that comes to mind.) They have the recipes in there for substituting the sugar with Splenda or other sweeteners. I've successfully made marmalade with them. The end product is a bit softer set than other jams and jellies but very good. I think the Splenda recipe site might also have directions for jam.
