Any artificial sweetener may be substituted for sugar or honey in jam. Simply follow the substitution directions on the sweetener you choose (it may not be a 1:1 substitution ratio).
Juice concentrates may also be used in place of sugar. The recipes I have call for about 3 cups of fruit to 1 cup of juice concentrate (plus about 1/4 c lemon juice).
The strawberry jam recipe previously submitted calls for about 4 cups of fruit to 1 cup of sugar. The sugar can be adjusted down slightly according to taste.
