09-24-2011, 12:16 PM
This was one of my former SAD staples.....
I'm asking for help to find raw jam/jelly recipes and the kind of raw bread recipes that goes well with nut butter and jelly.
The nut butter I can make, if you like to add nut butter recipes as well. That'll be great!
It is one of my comfort food and I miss it!!
Thank you!!! :heart

I am thinking of trying this out, but I have not yet. I think that if you make a fruit leather part way then you may have a jam like thing on your hands. Alternatively you could blend some strawberries with some agave or raw honey (if you eat those things) and have a strawberry jam.
As for the breads, the only kind of bread that I have ever made is pumpkin bread, and it is still in my dehydrator. I am not sure that it would be very good on PBJs!
I am interested in the bread recipes that people may have though!

I have made many jellies for my family, just the way you describe: I blend fruit ---say raspberries, for example, with a little maple syrup, and if I want to stretch out the raspberries, maybe a little apple, then strain through a nutmilk bag to remove the tiny seeds. Then put back into a high-speed blender with some dates and a pinch of sea salt.
Dehydrate for four or five hours and go in and stir it up every once and a while.
Make sure your kids aren't around, or it will disappear. This is every bit as rich as cooked jellies because the moisture is dehydrated out. But it tastes more ALIVE. Honestly, it does.
As for breads, just google raw flatbreads, or raw foods bread recipes.......
Here's one I got from this site. Unfortunately I didn't write down the author, so cannot give credit! You may sub ground carrots or carrot pulp for the potato, and ground sunflower seeds for the almonds, even cucumber for the zucchini.....etc: do remove the seeds and peels from zukes and cukes though...
Recipe Raw Almond Bread Mild and Soft Almond Bread
Makes 18 ’slices’
1/2c olive oil
1c dried sweet potato chips
3c almond pulp, leftover from making almond milk
1c flax meal
2 small zucchini and 2 small yellow squash, peeled and chopped
2 apples, cored and roughly chopped
3T lemon juice
Combine everything except the flax meal in the food processor and process till smooth.
Put in a large bowl and stir in flax meal. Place back in processor, half of the batter at a time, and process till smooth.
Divide batter in half and place on two trays with teflex. Spread to cover the whole sheet, and score with a knife to make 9 slices on each sheet.
Dehydrate at 140 degrees for one hour, flip onto a mesh sheet, and continue dehydrating at 105 degrees for another 8 hours. It should still be soft.
Store in the freezer and remove slices as needed. They thaw very quickly.

i take the lazy way out.. i just mash fresh berries up with agave (or your sweetener of choice). Pile on top of a raw cracker that is already topped with raw nut butter and yummers!

Pumpkin bread is really good!! More like fig jam with a hint of cinnamon could be good with hazelnut butter. MMMmm yum!
Read this a while back and can't remember where though. Make fruit leathers, then put into blender with what to make the jelly/jam?
Haven't had much luck with almond pulp, it always taste sour to me for whatever reason.... so I tend to stay away from it. I could sub with different nuts though like brazil or walnut?
Tried alot of raw bread, and found several I like, but the taste of them isn't made for the nut butter and jelly type though. I'm looking for a mild bread taste that is similar to wheat bread.
Could give mixing fruits and honey together..... Think this will work with honey instead of maple syrup in the D? I hope so. I could give it try tonight.
Anybody have a raw bread recipe that's compatible with this combo? Pretty please with cherry and raw coconut cream on top! :heart:

Okay!! Fruit and honey in blender will work for sure!!! I just tried it with peach!! OMG, excellent!! Now, I put some in the D to see how that works out. That def hit the spot! Thank you all for the tips!! It is actually better than the SAD jams.
