Homemade Blackberry Chia Seed Jam
Summertime is berry time! Oh, yeah! There’s nothing better than berries picked at their peak of freshness. Here in the NW, we have several local farms where you can pick to your hearts content. It’s a berry bonanza! There are so many recipes you can make to enjoy your fresh berries, but one of my favorites is this Blackberry Chia Seed Jam.
It’s so healthy and so delicious, you’ll want to spread it on everything from toast and pancakes to waffles and ice cream. I think it would even be good in these cookie cups. Not to mention PB&Js!
Speaking of sandwiches, my son has a little bit of a peanut butter and jelly sandwich addiction. He makes them every single day for his school lunch…and any other time he makes himself lunch. I suppose he likes them (he’s a teenage boy, they don’t speak much). I’m guessing he likes how delicious they are, but I think he also likes that they’re so easy to make (he’s a teenage boy, they live for easy)!
I like having this Blackberry Chia Seed Jam on hand for him to make his sandwiches because it packs a little superfood – chia seeds – in every bite and has no processed sugar. Like flax seeds, chia seeds are super high in Omega-3 fatty acids. In addition, you get a healthy dose of antioxidants, fiber, calcium and protein.
My son also like this Strawberry Chia Seed Jam. He has no idea how healthy he’s eating! Score one for mom!
Homemade vs. Store Bought Jam
Have you checked your jam jar from the store? I’m guessing there’s some added sugar in there. This tastes way better and is soooo much better for you.
The crazy thing is, this Homemade Blackberry Chia Seed Jam is really easy to make, and it’s a lot less expensive then store-bought jams or jellies. In less than 20 minutes you can be enjoying its natural sweetness!
This jam is a refrigerator jam – it doesn’t require any canning, so no need to sterilize any jars and place in a water bath to seal. It’s amazing. Plus, there’s no pectin needed. The chia seeds, when exposed to moisture, plump up and thicken the jam naturally. Yum!
Oh, and it freezes well. So make a big batch and have it for later!
What could be easier?? No canning, but you get to enjoy fresh homemade jam! It’s even good over a scoop of vanilla ice cream. So enjoy!
