Isn’t spring divine?! I am sitting out in the sun, we have just had a backyard picnic and everyone is happy. Yesterday I received a request for jam. This picture has been on my computer for a while now, so I took this as a prompt to share it with you all. I actually use this in some other recipes that will be coming up. This jam is delicious and best of all it is incredibly quick and easy. We all love it, as do the many visitors who have tried it out. You can play around with the recipe until you find the perfect balance for your family, extra chia seeds will thicken the jam, extra maple syrup will increase the sweetness. You can add vanilla or lemon juice and also play around with other fruits, if you are using strawberries I would double the amount of chia seeds. I hope you like it.
2 cups of raspberries or blueberries, fresh or defrosted
2 tablespoons chia seeds
1 tablespoon maple syrup (optional)
Place all ingredients into your blender or food processor and pulse until combined, pour into a jar and place in the fridge for a couple of hours to thicken. Enjoy!
Did I mention how delicious this is with roasted almond butter?
