Microwave Sugar Free Jam

Saw this great looking tutorial/recipe on Microwave Jam over at Simply Recipes. I had no idea you could make your own jam that easily!! This is great for me since I’d prefer to make small batches since I never eat a lot of jam at any given time. I just have a craving once in awhile for a slice of toast with jam, etc. I can’t wait to try making some. After looking for other recipes since I don’t usually have figs lying around, I discovered that homemade jams use a LOT of sugar…more than 1 cups worth for a small amount!! So I was on the hunt for some low sugar or sugar-free jams. Here are a few recipes!
