easy strawberry chia jam

IMG_6215

We spent several summer weekend mornings picking berries at our favorite local farm, Garden Sweet. Mostly we just gobbled those sweet berries up within a few days (or hours!), but I also got a chance to incorporate them into some yummy treats like strawberry banana pancakes and raspberry orange corn muffins. And I finally tried my hand at making jam, but the easy kind of jam…chia jam!

I liked the “easy chia jam” instructions that I found here. I opted to briefly cook our strawberries, although it’s not strictly necessary to do so. And the only other ingredients were 1 tablespoon lemon juice, 1 heaping tablespoon maple syrup, and 2 heaping tablespoons plus 1 teaspoon chia seeds. I went light on the maple syrup since Jeff is a very low sugar kinda guy, but even he thought more maple syrup would have been nice. The consistency was great, and here’s what the finished product looked like on a pice of toast! Yum!
