Chia inspired Refrigerator Jam
Pectin-free and no REFINED sugar just honey and baby you will love this!
Get out a blender or food pro and blitz the following and sub out what you like but just keep the amounts the same for the type of fruit.
1 + 1/3 cup strawberries/gooseberries/blueberries/raspberries or find your own fruit or berry you like – raw Oh dear GOD in Heaven please wash your fruit before blitzing these!
2/3 cup rhubarb – raw Yes rhubarb is sour but it is actually a traditional medicinal plant and it adds a good balance to the very sweet notes of the fruit. You can adjust this a bit but please try the recipe as is and adjust once you start your own scientific process of adjustment for you and your family.
2 T raw honey (or to taste) Just a note about local honey it is good and it supports a local flowers and fruit growers in the area.
2 T chia seeds From the humble chia pets of days gone past have now given us an amazing versatile food that can give us extra protein and thicken up our recipes.
Process all ingredients in a blender, pour into jars and refrigerate overnight. Good idea to label with a date on these just for good housekeeping. Chia seeds gel up when they are gotten wet so they are great way to thicken up many things including the fruit puree. Also as you can see even if you are afraid of using a stove you can make this because there is no need to cook the fruit. I have a friend who is terrified of making even a grilled cheese sandwich so this is something even he can make. Provided he cleans up after!
Anyway I found this original recipe and I have made my jam with raspberries and it was great and I was thinking I am going to try this again and see about making blackberry jam too like this.
