Description

Deliciously sweet and refreshing strawberry chia seed jam that takes just 30 minutes to make from start to finish!


Ingredients

Scale
  • 1/2 kg fresh strawberries (or blueberries, raspberries, blackberries)
  • 3 tablespoons sugar
  • 2 tablespoons chia seeds

Instructions

  1. Remove the stalks and leaves from the strawberries, and cut the strawberries into quarters (If using other berries, skip this step)
  2. Place the strawberries in a medium saucepan over medium heat, and sprinkle sugar over, mixing them slightly
  3. Heat the strawberries for about 10 to 15 minutes until it starts to liquidfy and bubble slightly
  4. Allow the strawberries to come to a boil and break down – at this point, you may use a fork or a potato ricer to mash the strawberries into smaller pieces.
  5. Once strawberries have been mashed to your desired consistency, taste for sweetness. Add a bit more sugar if necessary (this will depend on how sweet your strawberries naturally are)
  6. Stir in the chia seeds and let it cook for another minute.
  7. Stir again, remove the saucepan from heat, and let the jam cool until thick (about 10 minutes). Note that the jam will get thicker as it cools.
  8. When jam is completely cool, place in medium-sized sterilized glass jar.
  9. Serve jam with toasted bread or crackers.
