Yield: 2 small jars

INGREDIENTS

  • 4 cups of Fresh Strawberries, quartered
  • 2 Tbsp of Fresh Lemon Juice
  • 2 Tbsp white Chia seeds
  • 3 Tbsp of honey, or enough until reach desired sweetness (can substitute with agave, maple syrup or sugar)
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla

DIRECTIONS

  1. In a saucepan over low to medium heat, add the quartered strawberries.
  2. Allow to cook on a low boil until softened.
  3. Use a potato masher to break them up.
  4. Add the lemon juice.
  5. Add your honey to sweeten the strawberries. Add enough until you reach desired sweetness. Add cinnamon and vanilla.
  6. Add the chia seeds and cook on low heat until thickened for about 10 minutes.
  7. It should be thick and gelatinous at this point.
  8. Allow to cool and transfer to a jar. Refrigerate overnight. This will help the seeds to soften further.

 

 

Note: the jam can be stored in the refrigerator for up to a week or in the freezer for up to 1 year.
