Berries Jam with Chia Seeds

If you ran out of jam/fruit spread for breakfast or school lunches and you have some fruit in your fridge you don’t need to run to the store. You mainly need some fruit and a sweetener. As a sweetener I like to use honey, maple syrup or coconut sugar. Sometimes if I’m in a rush I just smash the fruit, add the chia seeds and let it sit for a while before using it. My kids love it and it isn't crazy sweet as the store bought jam. You can use this jam to make a refreshment by mixing the jam with sparkling water, to make peanut butter and jelly sandwich, or as a topping for waffles, pancakes and oatmeal.


Ingredients:

Strawberries and raspberries

Splash of water

Few tablespoons of sugar, maple syrup or honey

Splash lemon juice

Few tablespoons of chia seeds


Directions:

  1. Cut the strawberries in fourths

  2. Place in a pot with the raspberries and a splash of water

  3. Bring to a boil

  5. Turn it off

  6. Add few tablespoons of your chosen sweetener

  7. Add a splash of lemon juice

  8. Let it to cool down

  9. Add the chia seeds

  10. Mix and refrigerate for few hour
