Strawberry Chia Jam

Author: Stephanie Kay

It is best to use strawberries that are fresh and in season; the fresher the berry the more flavour and more sweetness they will provide to the jam, however, this chia jam recipe can be made with frozen berries if needed.

Ingredients

Instructions

  1. Prepare the strawberries. Remove the stems, rinse thoroughly, and chop into small pieces.
  2. Transfer the washed berries to a saucepan and cook on a low heat. Cook the berries for approximately 5-7 minutes or until the fruit breaks down and become syrupy.
  3. As the berries cook down, use a potato masher or a fork to help break up the berries. You can leave the fruit as smooth or lumpy as you wish.
  4. When the berries have cooked down, add the lemon juice and honey and stir to combine. Taste and add more as needed.
  5. Turn off the heat, remove pan from stovetop and add the chia seeds.
  6. Ensure that the chia seeds are well combined in the mixture, stirring a few times.
  7. Allow the mixture to stand at least 5 minutes. As the chia seeds absorb the liquid the mixture will begin to thicken and take on a more gelatinous texture.
  8. Once cooled, transfer the mixture to a glass jar. The jam can be store in the fridge for up to 2 weeks.
  9. Enjoy!
