Simple Scrumptious Ginger Marmalade is a great addition to your trim and healthy table. It is sugarless, almost fat free using only healthy ingredients. #THMFP, #THM, #TrimHealthyMama

I wasn’t totally sure that I was going to like ginger marmalade when I made this recipe.

But it is Simply Scrumptious!! 

I’m not a huge fan of ginger’s spicy bite, but this ginger marmalade really ticks all my boxes for yummy. It’s slightly spicy and sweet at the same time.

I wanted to try something like this Sugar Free Cinnamon Jelly with ginger tea, because that is what I normally use when making my Good Girl Moonshine

So I started looking for a ginger jam recipe and couldn’t find anything. I did find this ginger marmalade in my grandma’s recipe box though (in a much larger quantity and using white sugar).

I scaled her recipe way back so that it would only make a couple of cups of marmalade, replaced the sugar with THM Super Sweet Blend, the pectin with THM Just Gelatin and the results are what I’m sharing with you, my readers. 

But let’s get back to why Ginger is so healthy.

Ginger’s Health Benefits

 

Ginger pumps up our body temperature, it helps in digestion and is cleansing to our cells. No wonder the Sisters add it to many of their recipes in the Trim Healthy Mama Plan

It is also soothing to your stomach and digestive tract. So get that ginger in there!!

Canning this Scrumptious Ginger Marmalade

I haven’t tried canning this ginger marmalade because using sweeteners with sugar alcohols when canning can make somethings taste off a couple months down the road and the ph of this marmalade is not high enough to allow for water bath canning.

Some tweaks that I haven’t tried are to replace the Sweet Blend with THM Pure Stevia extract using this conversion chart, and adding about 2-3 TBS of lemon juice to bring the ph up enough to kill off bacteria. Again — I have NOT tried this. If you do and it works would you please let me know.

Simply Scrumptious Ginger Marmalade makes an amazing healthy condiment in your trim and healthy kitchen.

  1. I just made this Ginger Marmalade and it’s delicious! Just the right amount of heat and sweet. I can see that it will have many uses besides toast. I can’t wait to try it in some other recipes. Maybe, Ginger Marmalade Chicken. Thank you for this creative recipe! I really appreciate it!

  2. This looks delicious! I want to make this ginger marmalade to use in your Pumpkin Print Cookies. Usually when I use fresh ginger, I typically grate it or just slice it. My question; do we need to trim off the outside “skin” of the ginger before dicing or shredding? Thx! Can’t wait to try this!
