Recipe

So no surprise here, I am a pretty big chia fan.  I've made all kinds of chia seed puddings (Banana Coconut, Apple Pie and Almond Butter, Chocolate Cherry), chia muffins, chia oats and continue to look for new ways to incorporate chia into my recipes.  So when I saw a chia jam post on Instagram I set out to create one at home.   The basic chia seed jam recipes call for 2-3 cups of fruit, 2-3 tablespoons of chia seeds, and some type of sweetener.  From there you can get all kinds of creative with spices, ginger, citrus zest, and any other flavors you love.  Today I am sharing a basic mixed berry jam but I am certain that there will be more to come.

Notes

Depending on how sweet the berries are, you may need to add sweetener. I usually use Stevia (2-4 drops of liquid Stevia is usually enough) or you can use honey, agave, maple syrup, or your preferred sweetener.
