Agave is a natural sweetener extracted from the heart of the agave plant. Agave is a low glycemic index sweetener, so it is slowly metabolized by the body preventing spikes in blood sugar. It is 25 percent sweeter than sugar, so you need less. It has been eaten by ancient civilizations for more than 5,000 years. It tastes just wonderful in this blueberry jam recipe.
