I’m slightly obsessed with this recipe for strawberry chia seed jam. I can’t believe how easy this stuff is to make, and how yummy it is!
I tested several recipes including cooking the berries down for 10 minutes versus the no-cook method. I tried different sweeteners such as honey, maple syrup and coconut sugar. At the end of my recipe testing, I found that the no-cook chia seed jam was every bit as delicious and fresher tasting than the cooked versions.
How to make Strawberry Chia Seed Jam:
Wash the strawberries and remove the stems. Slice them in half to make it easier to fit them into your food processor. If you don’t have a food processor, you can use a fork or a potato masher instead. Puree the strawberries until they are almost at the consistency you like. You can even leave a few pieces out and add them in after you’re done mixing if you’d like a chunky-style jam.
Add the chia seeds, honey and lemon juice to the food processor. Blend until everything is mixed well. Pour the jam into a container with a tight fitting lid, I love using Weck Jars, and let chill in the refrigerator for a couple of hours to thicken.
That’s really all there is to it. This chia seed jam will stay good in the fridge for up to a week.You will love how easy and delicious this jam is. Seriously! It takes less than ten minutes and it’s so much better for you than regular jam!
