Chia Jam

When we had to give up store-bought jam, breakfast became a little sad.  I tried a few “refrigerator jam” recipes and then I saw a recipe for chia jam on the back of the bag of Bob’s Red Mill Chia Seeds I had picked up (thinking I might do something with them).  I took that recipe, played with it a bit, and came up with an easy, delicious jam.

 

Chia Jam

1 apple, peeled and chopped

1 cup frozen berries of choice

63 g (3 Tbsp) honey

2 Tbsp chia seeds

 

Combine all ingredients in order listed in a small saucepan.  Heat over medium heat while stirring constantly until bubbling.  Reduce heat and simmer until apples are soft and mixture is very thick.  Remove from heat and allow to cool for a few minutes.  Using an immersion blender, mix until jam is smooth.  Pour into a jar and refrigerate.  The original recipe said it would keep for ~10 days, but it never lasts that long in our house!
