  • Medium Saucepan


  • 2 cups raspberries (fresh or frozen) or berries of choice
  • 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice , more to taste
  • 2 tablespoons agave nectar or any sweetener, more to taste
  • 1 tablespoon ground chia seed or 2 tablespoons whole chia seeds
  • teaspoon sea salt


  • Add raspberries to a medium saucepan over medium heat. The berries will start to release their liquid and break down after a few minutes. Use a potato masher to gently break down larger pieces, but don't mash too much, you want to leave some texture. Bring to a simmer for 3-5 minutes until it’s slightly thickened and saucy. Stir frequently.
  • Stir in the agave, lemon juice, ground chia seed, and salt. Cook on low for another 1-2 minutes to thicken (it'll thicken a lot more when it cools). Taste for flavor and add more if needed.
  • Remove from heat and let it completely cool. Pour into an air-tight jar and store in the fridge for 5-7 days.


  • Chia Seeds - if you don't have ground, you can use a coffee grinder or you can use the seeds whole (just double the amount). The whole chia seeds will add more texture, but they will soften perfectly in the jam. 
  • Other Berries for Jam - strawberries, blueberries, lingonberry, blackberries, gooseberries, or, cherries, cranberries. If you use fresh strawberries, trim stems and chop them before measuring. For frozen strawberries, thaw first before using. 
  • Flavor Add-In Ideas - ½  teaspoon vanilla extract, a pinch of nutmeg or cardamom, 1 teaspoon of lemon zest or orange zest, ½ teaspoon fresh minced ginger, 1-2 teaspoons fresh-chopped mint, or basil.
  • Yields - about 1 cup
