Raspberry & Chia Seed Jam

Raspberry & Chia Seed Jam

This is not just jam, this is a whole food, superfood, super jam! And the best thing about this recipe? You don’t need to use gelatin or refined sugar, which you’ll usually find in traditional fruit preserves. Essentially, all you need is your favourite berries and some chia seeds!


Ingredients
• Raspberries | 2 Cups
• Maple Syrup | 2 Tbsp
• Lemon Juice | 1 Tbsp
• Vanilla Extract | 1tsp
• Chia Seeds | 2 Tbsp

Method 
STEP 1 | In a medium saucepan over medium heat, add the raspberries and cook until they start to break down, stirring and mashing frequently, about 10 minutes.

STEP 2 | Turn the heat to low, stir in the maple syrup, lemon juice and vanilla extract. Then stir in the chia seeds and turn off the heat.

STEP 3 | Allow the mixture to stand for 5-7 minutes until the chia seeds thicken the jam and the mixture to cool down. (The jam will continue to thicken as it cools.)

STEP 4 | Serve immediately, or transfer the jam to a jar and store in the fridge for up to 2 weeks.
