A SCD Legal Jam You Don’t Have to Make from Scratch!
SCD and the GAPS diet come with strict food restrictions, but fortunately grain free flours like coconut flour make delicious, nourishing treats for these diets. There is nothing more comforting than smothering ultimate coconut flour pancakes with healing, raw butter and sweet fruit preserves.
Unfortunately, store bought jams don’t fall under the SCD legal category. Pectin and sugar, ubiquitous ingredients on jam, jelly, and preserve labels, doesn’t fit into the SCD or GAPS diet. That leaves two options for a muffin and jam craving. Option one: make your own SCD legal jam, like Mommypotamus’ recipe. I’m also working on a pectin-free jam recipe with a special technique, and I’ll post the recipe soon! Option two: find a store bought SCD legal form of spreadable, sweet fruit.
Apple Butter: A Store Bought SCD Legal Jam!
Apple butter fits the bill perfectly! If you have never tried apple butter, you are in for a thick, tangy treat. It tastes like apple pie shoved into a jar, sans the crust.
SCD and GAPS means approaching food labels with a certain cynicism. After all, manufacturers are notorious for putting undisclosed ingredients into packaged foods. You have to make a decision about what brands to trust. I do trust Eden Organics, and I believe them when they state the only thing in this apple butter is organic apples!
