Prep Time: 10 min

Total Time: 10 min

Serves: 6

Ingredients

  • 1 cup berries fresh or frozen and thawed
  • 1 tablespoon water (optional)
  • 1 tablespoon chia seeds adding more will thicken the jam
  • 1⁄2 tsp lemon
  • sweetener to taste honey, maple syrup, stevia

Directions

  • Mash some or all of berries using a fork, potato masher, blender or food processor until desired consistency.
  • Add remaining ingredients; stir well until everything is incorporated. If you left some berries aside stir them in now.

Notes:

You can use Sucanat or coconut palm sugar ~ either of them must be dissolved into liquid before adding.

How to:

Place sugar in a mug and boil water using the smallest amount of boiling hot water pour into mug to dissolve the sweetener, this is to avoid excess liquid in the jam. 

Chia seeds can rapidly absorb a large amount of liquid—up to 12 times their volume in 10 min.
