How to Make Sugar Free Jelly

With Thanksgiving coming up, we all know that sugar is everywhere. Pumpkin pies, jellies, sauces, etc. I want to cut some of the sugar this year, so I decided to do a Zevia swap out. I think that homemade jelly is just this side of perfection, but the sugar in there is to much!

When you visit a link in this article that takes you to a different website where you can purchase something, I may earn a commission. Read my full disclosure for more details.

So, this week, I am going to share with you some great recipe swap outs. And, today, I going to show you how to make sugar free soda jelly with Zevia. And it’s a hit in my house! You will want to whip up a batch for those Thanksgiving rolls and biscuits, too! It’s sugar free soda into sugar free jelly! What could be better, really?

How to Make Sugar Free Jelly

First, decide on the flavor of Zevia soda you want to use. I tried with Black Cherry, simply because it’s *MY* favorite flavor. You will also need a box of pomona’s universal pectin to make this recipe.

The, you will measure out 1 cup of the soda, and bring to a boil.

Add 4 teaspoons pectin water and 4 teaspoons calcium water to a blender and pour the boiling soda in. Blend for about 2 full minutes, until smooth.

Separately, bring another 3 cups of zevia soda to a boil. Add the pectin infused soda to the now boiling batch, and bring the entire mixture to a full boil.

Fill clean, sterilized jars to 1/4″ headspace and boil in a water bath for 15 minutes.

    I’ve never actually tried to make jelly before, but this seems like it might actually be doable! Pinning for later. 🙂

  2. Wow..this is new to me on many levels. I’ve never heard of Zevia and I have never heard of jelly made from soda pop. This is great!

  3. Do you have to put this in the refrigerator since it doesn’t have sugar? I have been struggling with no sugar jams and canning. I read in order for the canned jam to last, you have to use a certain amount of sugar.

  4. The recipe says 4 teaspoons of pectin water and calcium water. How much powder and water of each of the pectin and calcium do I need to mix to get the right ratio?
