Raspberry Chia Seed Jam

Raspberry Chia Seed Jam

I am not much of a jelly or jam person. Lily is. She loves the stuff. Two big spoonfuls on her toast every morning.

I think it’s too sweet. It really doesn’t taste much like the fruit that it’s supposed to be made of.

After a sale on raspberries at Kroger, I decided that we’d give this recipe a whirl. If it didn’t work, I was only out a couple of bucks for the berries. If it was a success, we could have tasty new jams and jellies whenever we want.

INGREDIENTS
1 lb. berries
3 T. honey
2 T. chia seeds
1 t. lemon juice

Tulepo Honey & Chia Seeds

Gather all of the ingredients. It’s a super quick recipe to make. I used Tulepo Honey, but you can experiment with different sweeteners to fit your family’s taste.

Raspberries.

Put berries, honey, chia seeds, and lemon juice in a blender or food processor.

For a chunkier jam, give the berries about 20-30 seconds of blending on a low setting.

For a smoother, more jelly consistency, about 50-60 seconds on a high setting.

The jam will need to chill in the refrigerator for at least an hour. Overnight is best because in the morning, it’s ready for toast!
