Strawberry Chia Jam

Strawberry Chia Jam Recipe

By VegetaFull

🔪Prep Time: 5 minutes

👩‍🍳Cook Time: 10 minutes


2 cups of strawberries, fresh or frozen

¼ cup of date syrup (or maple syrup)

2 tablespoons of chia seeds


1If using fresh strawberries, remove the tops and slice them. If using frozen strawberries, thaw them out.

2Add the strawberries and date (or maple) syrup to a small cooking pot. Stir to combine. Once the berries are hot and soft, use a potato masher to gently crush the berries in the pot to release some of the juice.

3Cook on medium-high heat until the berries begin to bubble and foam. Stir occasionally to prevent sticking. Turn the heat down to medium-low and simmer for about 5 more minutes, until the berries have thickened up and there is less juice in the pot. Strawberries have their own natural pectin, so be careful not to over reduce, as the jam will thicken considerably as it cools.

4Pour in the chia seeds and stir gently for 2 additional minutes until the seeds have begun to gel.

5Slide the pot off the heat and let the jam cool for 10 minutes before scooping into a clean glass jar. This allows the chia seeds to thicken the jam additionally. Cool completely and store in the refrigerator.

6Note: Raspberries also work well in chia jam. Their seeds look like chia seeds which makes a very pretty jam. You may need to reduce the cooking time though, as raspberries contain less water than strawberries.
