MAKES 8 OUNCES OF JAM
12-ounce bag of frozen raspberries (or 3 cups fresh)
2 tablespoons maple syrup
1 teaspoon rosewater
1 tablespoon chia seeds
In a small pot, heat raspberries until they start to break down and release their juices. Add maple syrup, rosewater and chia seeds and simmer until mixture reaches a thin jam-like consistency (it will firm up more as it cools). Remove and store in the refrigerator for 5 days.
Chia jam is a great way to incorporate omega 3-packed chia seeds into your daily diet Spread on toast or serve warm on top of oatmeal or pancakes. I love using frozen berries for chia jam since it’s so easy, but really any kind of fruit would work. Rosewater is totally optional, but I think it adds just a little floral edge to this jam to make it more interesting. You could add vanilla instead.
