Strawberry Chia Jam

strawberry chia jam

This delicious jam captures the sweet, fresh flavour of strawberries. It's far more tasty than shop bought jams and what's more, isn't laden with refined sugar! Clever chia seeds help the mixture to thicken and set, creating a jam-like texture. It works well spread on toast, dolloped onto porridge, added to puddings and pancakes, the list goes on! Trust me, once you try this you'll want to add it to everything- not to mention wanting to try other berry flavours!

Three great health benefits: boosts immunity, good source of Omega 3 fatty acids, good source of antioxidants 

Makes 1 cup

200g strawberries, chopped and with the green stems removed
2 tbsp chia seeds
1-2 tsp maple syrup (optional, to taste)

1) Mash the strawberries really well so that the mixture resembles a puree
2) Add the chia seeds and maple syrup, if using. Stir well to combine. Set aside for half an hour to set. Stir and pour into an airtight storage container. Keep refrigerated.
