Prep Time 5 minutes
Cook Time 5 minutes
Total Time 10 minutes
- 1 cup blackberries, raspberries or strawberries (fresh or frozen)
- 2 teaspoons fresh lemon juice
- 2 tablespoons pure maple syrup
- 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1 1/2 tablespoons chia seeds
- 1/8 teaspoon Himalayan salt (or preferred salt)
In a small saucepan, heat the blackberries over medium heat. Bring to a gentle boil, then reduce heat and gently simmer until the berries soften and break apart, about 2-3 minutes. Stir frequently.
Using a fork or potato masher, mash the berries lightly, leaving some pieces. Stir in the maple syrup, lemon juice, vanilla, chia seeds and salt. Cook on low for another 1-2 minutes. The jam will thicken up more when cooled.
Remove from heat and let cool. Pour into an air-tight jar. This should last about a week in the fridge.
*If you'd like it a little sweeter, just add another 1/2 - 1 teaspoon of maple syrup.
*If using frozen strawberries, let them thaw for 20-30 minutes.
