Description

Turn juicy sweet berries into a delicious homemade jam in just 30-minutes! Simply made with berries, honey, chia seeds, and lemon juice. No canning necessary!

 


Ingredients

Scale
  • 2 cups fresh chopped strawberries
  • 2 cups fresh blueberries
  • 1 cup honey
  • 1/3 cup chia seeds
  • 1 Tbsp. fresh lemon juice

Instructions

  1. In a 4-quart heavy-bottom saucepan combine strawberries, blueberries, and honey. Bring to a simmer over medium heat. Stir in chia seeds. Reduce heat to a medium-low.
  2. Simmer, uncovered, stirring occasionally, for 10-15 minutes or until the berries soften and break down. It’s normal for the foam to form on the top of the jam as it cooks. 
  3. Remove saucepan from heat and stir in lemon juice. Jam will be pretty runny but it will thicken as it cools and even more when refrigerated. 
  4. Let jam cool completely at room temperature and then ladle into clean half-pint jars.
  5. Store covered, for up to 4 weeks in the refrigerator. Recipe makes 2 1/2 cups.

Notes

  • Feel free to make this jam with other berries such as blackberries, raspberries, or cherries (not a berry but still a favorite). If using frozen berries, simply add them to the saucepan without thawing out first.
