Description

Delicious homemade chia jam. Great with any berries!


Ingredients

Units Scale
  • 6 cups strawberries, chopped (fresh or frozen)
  • splash water
  • 1 vanilla bean, seeds scraped (sub 1 tsp vanilla extract or 1/2 tsp vanilla powder)
  • 2-3 tbsp maple syrup (or any other sweetener you like)
  • 1 tbsp lemon juice
  • 1/2 cup chia seeds

Instructions

  1. Start by chopping your strawberries. I like my jam to be chunky so I left a few small ones whole but you can chop them as finely as you like.
  2. Place the strawberries into a big pot, add a splash a water and bring to a boil over medium-high heat.
  3. Once boiling, lower the heat and let it simmer for 10-15 minutes depending on the size of your strawberries. Stir occasionally.
  4. Add the vanilla, lemon juice, and sugar and cook for 5 more minutes.
  5. Turn off the heat and let it cool for 5-10 minutes.
  6. Stir in the chia seeds and the mixture soak for at least 1 hour. Stir occasionally to avoid lumps.
  7. After it cools down completely, transfer the jam into an airtight container and store in the fridge for up 4-5 days.

Notes

You can use this exact recipe with any other berries! Raspberries, blackberries, blueberries, or red currants are all great options. Check out this Lavender Blackberry jam recipe!
