This jam is so easy to make and tastes amazing! The chia seeds work as thickeners and also add a ton of great nutrients to the recipe. You can use whatever berries you prefer when making the jam!

Makes 1 Jar.

Ingredients:

2 Cups fresh raspberries

1 Cup fresh strawberries

2 Tablespoons of chia seeds

*You can add 2 Tablespoons of agave or honey if you’d like, but i felt it was naturally sweet enough.

Directions:

Add all ingredients expect for chia seeds into a medium pot and stir . Bring mixture to a boil. Reduce heat to low, cover, and let simmer for 15-20 minutes. Stir occasionally . When Berries are soft and tender, remove from heat and mash the mixture ( I use a fork or potato masher). Add chia seeds to mixture, stir well to avoid any clumps. Put in refrigerator and allow to thicken for at least a 2-3 hours ( the longer the better).

Can last up to 2 weeks in the refrigerator in an air tight container.
