Ingredients

  • 2 cups fruit fresh or frozen

Instructions

  • Add the fruit to a pot and let it simmer over medium heat until it starts to break down.

  • Stir in the chia seeds. Transfer the chia seed jam to a storage container and let it cool. Then store it in the refrigerator.

Notes

  • Fruit: You can use this recipe with any type of fruit that is juicy. I love to make berry jam, bur feel free to make the kind of jam you love. If you use larger fruits, cut them into smaller pieces before making the jam.
  • Sweetener: The amount of maple syrup you'll need depends on how sweet the fruit you use is. Feel free to add more or less maple syrup to taste!
