Strawberry Preserves


  • 4 oz (113.3g) strawberries
  • 1 tablespoon (15 ml, 7 g) gelatin (optional)
  • 1 teaspoon (5ml, 7.7g) lime juice
  • 1/8 teaspoon (.5 ml) ancho chili powder (optional)
  • liquid stevia to taste, or your preferred sweetner (optional)


Wash the strawberries and heat them in a saucepan over medium high heat. Add the gelatin, lime juice, and ancho chili powder and mix well. Bring to a light boil for 2-3, and help to macerate the berries with a fork. Add water a tablespoon at a time if you prefer a thinner preserve. Let the mixture cook longer to provide a thicker preserve. If you prefer even even smoother result, your can blend the preserves. Add liquid stevia to taste. Enjoy!
