    This recipe looks great and easy. I have a few raspberries and blueberries that are frozen. Could I add them to the jam if I blended them first?

      Good question, Heather. I would say a couple weeks. It doesn’t really have any preservatives, so eating it soon after it’s made is best.

      What a great question, Deb. I love it fresh, but you could absolutely freeze it for later. Since the jam doesn’t have any preservatives, freezing would definitely make it last longer. I think I’ll add this to the post so everyone knows. I appreciate you asking the question.

      Me too! And it’s healthy, so I feel good serving this jam to the family. My son didn’t even know there was a superfood in there!

    Hi Erin, I love the sound of this jam, I’ve started sprinkling chia seeds on all sorts. I would never have thought to add jam to cottage cheese either.

    Thank you for sharing.

    This is so perfect! My vegetarian has not been eating much this summer, she is getting bored with her “go tos”. This would be perfect for her. She loves strawberries and yogurt, or pair this up with goat cheese or brie and crackers. I’m going to whip this up for her, especially with the nutrition values!

    • Erin says

      I’m guessing she’s going to love it! The nutrition is great, but the taste is what will keep her coming back for more! I love your idea of brie and crackers!

      Just served it on my son’s PB&J today. He didn’t even know there was a super food in there. Just thought it was delicious!
