Berry Chia Jam
- 2 cups berries, (raspberry, strawberry, blueberry, blackberry or mixture)
- 2 T honey or maple syrup
- 2 T lemon juice, fresh
- 2 T chia seeds
- fresh herbs optional – mint, basil, oregano
Blend the berries, lemon juice, sweetener and some fresh herbs if using, until smooth or just a little chunk remaining. Pour into a bowl and whisk in chia seeds. If you prefer seedless jam, strain berry mixture through a fine sieve and grind the chia seeds before stirring into the fruit. Put into jars and refrigerate overnight.
Use this mixture as a topping for non-dairy ice cream, over biscuits or pancakes, to add beautiful color to dessert plates, or stirred into yogurt. Just enjoy the bright flavor and nutritional benefits!
