I LOVE jam, but I hate buying it at the grocery store. There are so many ingredients that are unnecessary and unhealthy.
This jam is just 4 healthy ingredients:
– 1lb Strawberries (or any berry of your choice)
– 3 tbsp Chia Seeds
– 2 tbsp honey
– 1/2 tsp vanilla extract (or vanilla bean)
Bring strawberries to a boil (if using fresh, add a little water). Simmer for a few minutes until soft. Mash with a potato masher and leave some small pieces.
Once mashed, add in other ingredients.
Once mixed well, let cool down to room temperature. After it is cooled down, pour into a mason jar and put in the fridge. Same consistency as store-bought jam, but tastes way better!
