QUICK CHIA SEED BERRY JAM

QUICK CHIA SEED BERRY JAM

danielle copperman

When most people think of jam, they imagine an arduous process involving sterilised jars and very precise temperature maintenance. With this jam, the chia seeds do the hard work. No wonder they're called super foods.


INGREDIENTS

2 Cups Blueberries, Blackberries, Raspberries or Cranberries (can use just one or a mixture of your favourites)
4 Tablespoons Chia Seeds
1 Teaspoon Coconut Oil
1/4 Cup Water
1 Teaspoon Agave or Raw Organic Honey
1/2 Teaspoon Vanilla
1 Teaspoon Fresh Lemon or Lime Juice
1 Teaspoon Ground Ginger, optional
1 Teaspoon Ground Cinnamon, optional

METHOD

Start by melting the coconut oil in a medium saucepan. Add the berries and the water and stir on a medium heat. Using a wooden spoon, press the berries to burst them as they begin to heat, and stir to combine, using a gentle mashing motion to release all of the flavour. Add the chia seeds and simmer for 10-12 minutes, stirring every so often and adding more water if it seems to become too thick. Then add the vanilla, lemon or lime juice and sweetener, if using, stir a final time, and pour into jars or airtight containers.
