I'm almost reluctant to share this recipe because I could totally serve it to friends for years to come and shrug off their compliments and oohs and ahhs with the casual "Oh, it was nothing!" to which they would think "riiiiggght, making jam is totally nothing!  That Sarah is such a domestic goddess!".  But alas, now the cat is out of the bag.  This jam is so easy to make a puppy could do it.  That's right.  Bean made this jam.  I KID I KID!  It was me.  But it was so easy I swear if she had thumbs and the ability to resist licking every last bit out of the pan she totally could have made it herself.  So, this weekend, get yourself a really beautiful loaf of sourdough from the farmer's market, whip up a little batch of this chia jam, grind up some almond butter, and invite some friends over to enjoy it all with coffee and tea.  Lastly, give yourself a nice pat on the back.  You will have reached domestic goddess status with almost no efforts at all!  xx- Sarah  {more after the jump}




1 cup frozen raspberries

1 tablespoon raw honey (more if you'd prefer a sweeter jam)

1/2 lemon

2 tablespoons white chia seeds



-  Combine frozen raspberries, juice of 1/2 lemon and honey in a small sauce pan and heat over low.  Mash berries with a fork and stir until broken down to a consistency you're happy with!  Taste, add additional honey if you'd prefer it more sweet and less tart.

-  Add chia seeds and mix well.

-  Pour jam into 125 ml jar and refrigerate for 1 hour to set.  

-  Enjoy!

How long does the jam last once it's made? Does it need to be eaten the same day? I'm just thinking it would be great for a gift!

So if I'm understanding this correctly, one could use any frozen fruit? I'm thinking blueberries or strawberries... this seems to easy!

@leila- it doesn't need to be eaten the same day, but it will eventually go bad. Not sure how long that would take as it's such a small batch that it gets gobbled up before that happens around here! It would also very depending on the fruit, whether it's organic or not,etc.

@katrina- yes! strawberries would be so good!

wow this is it - looks far more complicated. How long does it last - there again if its that good, maybe it will be gone in a week. Perfect for weekend brunch.
