By far the easiest jam recipe you'll ever make. No cooking, no pectin, no sugar. Only two ingredients and you can eat it straight out of the jar if you want to. Seriously. Crushed fruit and chia seeds and that's it.
The chia seeds thicken up the fruit so it can become spreadable for peanut butter and jelly or topped on your hot cereal's in the morning. Also great scooped into your morning smoothie. And chia seeds are super healthy for you, so that's a plus. Noted as one of the most nutritious foods on the planet they have ton's of fiber, protein, Omega-3's and various other nutrients. You can buy them most places these days, they usually come in a see through container and are dry and very tiny. You can also find them online. And best of all they are usually reasonably priced.
I loved this recipe because clearly, it's very easy. But also very healthy AND it tastes exactly like the fruit itself, the chia seeds don't add any flavor, just texture.
