Ingredients

  • ½ cup pitted and halved cherries
  • ½ cup hulled and roughly chopped strawberries
  • 1 Tbsp honey or sugar to taste
  • ½ tsp lemon juice
  • 2 Tbsp chia seeds

Instructions

Cooked Fruit Chia Jam

  • Cook: Mix together fruit and honey then cook in a small stockpot over medium heat for about 10 minutes, mashing with a fork or spoon to break down the fruits into a juicy mush.
  • Thicken: Remove from heat and allow to cool slightly, then mix in lemon juice and chia seeds. Set in fridge and allow the mixture to thicken.

Raw Fruit Chia Jam

  • Blend: Place fruit and honey in a food processor and pulse until you reach a smooth (but still with a few chunks of fruit) consistency.
  • Thicken: Mix in lemon juice and chia seeds. Set in fridge and allow the mixture to thicken.
