Ingredients

  • 3 cup blueberries fresh or frozen
  • 3 tablespoon chia seeds
  • 3 tablespoon maple syrup, pure

Instructions

  • In a medium sauce pan, combine the blueberries and chia seeds. Bring to a simmer over medium-low heat. Cover and cook until the blueberries start to break down and the jam thickens, about ten minutes. Stir occasionally.
  • Using a potato masher or large fork, crush the berries to your desired texture. If you like a very smooth jam, you can use an immersion blender to puree the berries.
  • Once the berries are mashed, stir in the maple syrup. You may serve the jam warm at this stage!
  • Allow jam to cool before transferring it to an air tight container. Store in fridge for up to two weeks.
