Strawberry Chia Jam

Chia seeds make a quick and easy jam for a healthier option. This recipe features strawberries.The chia seeds thicken to give almost a “jam” texture and the berry fruit being naturally sweet.

With only 3 ingredients this strawberry chia jam could not be any easier to make.

 

The beauty of using chia seeds when making a batch of strawberry chia jam is that the swollen chia seeds look like strawberry seeds, blending nicely with the fruit.  The Chief Taster accuses me of “tricking him” when I make a batch of this as he munches on the chia seeds thinking that they are strawberry seeds.   However much he tries to resist a healthier option he’s not going to win in my kitchen! Sorry, husband!

Although this is a simple chia jam you could add other flavours with the strawberries such as a dash of balsamic vinegar, ginger, cinnamon, vanilla or orange zest.

Chia Jam

The strawberry chia jam will keep for at least 2 weeks in the fridge, ready to slather on bread, cakes or with a pancake. Or with some whipped coconut cream and chopped nuts.  Any time is jam time and if it is sugar free than more for everyone!
