Now I love my jam, and we have made some weird ones over the years. Rest assured this is not one of them!
We created this jam in under 5 minutes, its 100% all natural, and we only used THREE ingredients. The secret ingredient in the secret sauce is chia seeds! Thats right, chia seeds like the chia plant from the 80s!
Chia Seed Info: They are chalk full of fiber, omega 3 fatty acids, calcium, and more! They are also considered a great source of plant based protein. Best part, they help prevent sugar spikes! You can find them in any grocery store and they are relatively inexpensive since you don’t need much.
Back to the good stuff!
2 cups raspberry (if using frozen, defrost first)
2 tablespoons chia seeds
2 tablespoons warm water
2-4 tablespoons honey (preferably raw)
1/2 teaspoon vanilla (optional)
Add all ingredients (start with 2 tablespoons of the honey) to a blender or food processor, and pulse until the it is the texture you prefer. I don’t like it too chunky, but you may leave it that way if that’s how you like it. Taste and add more honey if you would like a sweeter jam. I like mine on the sweet side! Raspberry tends to be a tart berry sometimes, so may need to add more honey than I do. Transfer the mixture to a container with a lid (I used a mason jar) and allow to set in the fridge, about an hour.
