Jam, jam, jam. While some of you may think that making jam is for Grandma, I am here to show you how easy, healthy, and delish it is to make your own homemade healthy jam. You may never buy that store stuff again....
What is the going rate from some real fruit jam these days? $3 or $4 or more, depending on location. I know I have paid obscene amounts in the past, but those days are past. Berries are in season which means they are at their lowest prices!!! I am in love!
The base of these jams are berries and chia seeds. The chia seeds absorb the liquid and will give you the "jam like" texture.
Without further adieu, Suzy Homemaker here to show you how to make 3 different natural, healthy and tasty fruit jams.
**These are fresh jams. They will only be good for 1 to 1.5 weeks in the fridge**
Don't make more than you can finish or share with friends! BUT - you can freeze your fresh, low cost berries and make this any time you wish!!!
FRESH HOMEMADE STRAWBERRY CHIA SEED JAM
HOMEMADE BLUEBERRY CHIA JAM
HOMEMADE RASPBERRY & VANILLA CHIA SEED JAM
Simple right? If your feeling extra creative, try making a mixed berry!
You can enjoy these jams on muffins, bagels, toast, yogurt, in oatmeal, on ice cream or homemade banana based "ice cream", in a smoothie, pancakes, french toast, and more. Just because it is called "Jam" doesn't mean its uses are limited. Remember, you made this out of fresh fruit and a chia seeds.
Which one will you be making?
