Blackberry Chia Jam

Posted by & filed under recipe.

DSC_0337R-sqMany people I know stay away from making jams, but it doesn’t have to be a daunting task!

This recipe is flexible, easy and fast, doesn’t require purchasing any pectin or thickener, and no need to figure out how to can, as it can be easily kept in the freezer and thawed as needed.

You can make large batches, or try adding in some other fruit (blackberry and blueberry anyone?). The possibilities are endless.

Blackberry Chia Jam

  • 1 cup blackberries fresh, or frozen ~ thawed
  • 1 squeeze lemon juice or approximately 1 tsp
  • 1 tbsp honey, or to taste
  • 2 tbsp chia seeds

Combine blackberries, lemon juice and honey in a saucepan and bring to a simmer. Once simmering, mash the berries with a fork, keep simmering for five minutes, stirring regularly.

Add chia seeds, stir to evenly distribute seeds and remove from heat. Let sit 10 minutes, transfer to an airtight container and let it set in the fridge until totally cool to fully set.
