Homemade Strawberry Jam

Ingredients

  • 3 cups fresh strawberries (chopped into small pieces)
  • ¼ cup chia seeds
  • 1 vanilla pod, split and scraped

Method

  1. Blitz the strawberries in a blender to form a smooth consistency before placing them in a small saucepan and cooking over medium heat for a few minutes.
  2. Stir in the chia seeds and cook for a further 10 minutes or so, until the jam thickens.
  3. Add the vanilla seeds and then remove from the heat.
  4. Let it cool, then spoon it into a jam jar and store in the fridge for up to a week.
  5. Note: If you prefer your jam a little sweeter, you could add 1 tbsp of coconut sugar or rice malt syrup to the berries when they are cooking down, however I think it is sweet enough without this addition.
