... CH-CH-CH-CHIA SEED JAM! 🍓
This 10-Minute Chia Seed Jam recipe is my fave!! It’s super quick and easy to make, thickened with chia (instead of tons of extra sugar), totally delicious, and made with real ingredients you can feel great about.
🍍Chia seeds thicken the jam…not tons of added sugar! Traditional jams contain an insane amount of sugar. But not chia jam 😁
🥭One batch only takes about 10 minutes. Easy peasy, made in the same amount of time it takes to brew your morning coffee ☕️
🍓This recipe works with nearly any juicy fruit. Strawberries, raspberries, blueberries, blackberries, cherries, peaches, apricots, kiwi, pineapple…you name it! And feel free to customize yours with any other seasonings as well!
🥝Alright, so to begin, simply add about 2 cups of fruit (fresh or frozen) and lemon juice to a saucepan over medium-high heat. The fruit should quickly begin to warm up and break down. Then you can mash it with a spoon until it reaches your desired consistency. I still like my jam to have a few chunks of fruit, instead of being completely smooth.
🍑Then sprinkle in 2 tablespoons or so of chia seeds and give them a good stir until combined. Remove from heat, and the jam will start to thicken quickly as it cools.
🍒Give the jam one final good stir. Then serve immediately, or transfer to a sealed container and refrigerate for up to 1 week, or freeze for up to 3 months.
🍋Feel free to experiment and play around with your favourite flavours, consistency, and extra add-ins here. The sky’s the limit to what you can create. So have fun with this one!
