For Strawberry Jam

strawberry-jam

Need some delicious jam to go with the Vegan Gluten-Free bread you made with me last week? Try this super easy recipe for raw strawberry jam with chia seeds.

chia-seeds

Put two tablespoons of chia seeds in two tablespoons of water. Want your jam sweetened? Just add in a couple tablespoons of honey (like I did) or some other sweetener you like. Let the chia seeds sit while you wash and hull your strawberries.

If you have a blender or food processor, throw your berries in there and chop it all up. If you’re super buff and a total do-it-yourselfer then grab a fork and get at those bad boys. Once your berries are mashed up, add in the chia seeds mixture. Let it sit up in your fridge for a half hour (or more if you can wait) and then put it all in a jar. You can even make a double batch to share with your friends.

  12. Ohhh, jam thickened with chia seeds is such a clever idea; I bet this recipe is bursting at the seams with flavour!

  13. Such a fantastic idea Kate!! The weather’s cooling down over here and I can imagine adding a big dollop of this gorgeous jam to my porridge in Winter (nutritious and delicious!). Thanks so much for the recipe. Would you recommend storing this in the fridge? How long will it last for, approximately? Love your blog! xx

    • Yes, definitely store it in the fridge. It can last a couple weeks but keep your eye on it because it is raw. Raw foods need proper storage to stay fresh.
