- 1 cup berries*
- 1 tbsp water
- 1/2 tbsp natural sweetener **
- 1-2tbsp chia seeds***
*Use what ever berries you like; I've made it using strawberries, blueberries, and blackberries and they turned out great! I'd like to try it using peaches sometime soon to see how it turns out.
**I used real maple syrup because thats what i had on hand but you could use honey just as easily. The amount of sweetener you use may vary depending on personal preference and the type of berries you use. Blackberries tend to be a bit tart so i used a little more syrup then the recipe called for.
***The more chia seeds you add to your jam the thicker it will be, it also thickens more as it cools so keep this in mind! When I first made this I made a little batch just to see what ratio of chia seeds to berries my family liked. I used about 1 1/2 tbsp:1 cup of berries.
