Fruit may not be the most "keto-friendly" ingredient but if it's used moderately with other nutritious foods, it can be included in a healthy low-carb diet.
This recipe doesn't require any pectin or other thickeners such as arrowroot powder. I used my favourite ingredient instead: chia seeds. They are almost zero-carb and low in calories.
Chia seeds will create that nice jelly texture. You can serve this sweet cherry jam wit yogurt, coconut yogurt, whipped cream or even low-carb pies like my Dark Cherry Crunch Pie which is free of grains, sugar, eggs, dairy, and can even be made nut-free.
