Reduced Sugar Freezer Jam

Hello friends! It's been awhile! Ok, so I have to admit, I have been in a cooking slump.... UNTIL, I found this amazing product! My sister in law introduced me to it while we were slaving over making our annual batches of raspberry freezer jam! THIS WAS THE EASIEST recipe EVER and good news, there is really no stirring or waiting required!
( I bought it at Harmon's grocery store in Utah for $8.00.  It can also be found at all Whole Food Stores and specialty grocery stores.  Walmart DOES NOT carry it.)

4 cups finely chopped or crushed fruit or berries
2 cups sugar or sweetener equivalent
2 TBS. lemon juice
1/2 cup of Ultra Gel

Combine crushed fruit, sugar and lemon juice in a medium bowl.  Gradually add Ultra Gel, stirring constantly.  Let stand for 5 minutes to thicken and stir until smooth.  Package in jars, label, date and freeze!
Yields 5 cups. ( I was able to make 12 jars from doing this recipe 2 times!)
(Recipe from label on the above product.)

 And of course... I HAD HELP!
