Chia Seed Jam

Chia seeds help provide extra gelling power that most jams rely on boiled sugar to achieve. This easy approach to jam values the flavor of the fruit over the sweetness for a topping you’ll love on toast, stirred into hot cereal, or paired with your favorite nut butter in a sandwich.

Ingredients

  • 1 cup blueberries
  • ¼ cup chopped strawberries
  • 1½ Tbsp. maple syrup
  • 1 Tbsp. chia seeds
  • ½ tsp. vanilla
  • ½ tsp. cinnamon

Directions

  1. Combine berries and maple syrup in small saucepan over medium heat. Cook, stirring and mashing fruit gently, until mixture reaches a simmer (12-15 minutes).
  2. Stir in chia seeds and cook, stirring constantly, until jam thickens (5-8 minutes).
  3. Remove from heat and stir in vanilla and cinnamon.
