2 cups fresh strawberries
1Tbsp. fresh lemon juice
3 Tbsp. Raw honey or pure maple syrup
2 Tbsp. chia seeds*
Wash and hull strawberries and cut into quarters.
Add prepared strawberries to a small saucepan over medium heat. Allow strawberries to come to a boil, begin mashing with a potato masher or a fork.
Continue mashing and allow to boil for 10 minutes. Jam will be about the consistency of course apple sauce.
Remove pan from heat and stir in honey, lemon juice, and chia seeds. Allow to cool for about 5 minutes.
Stir jam, it should have thickened a bit. Transfer into a pint jar. Allow to cool, secure lid and store in the refrigerator. You can also store in the freezer, allow to thaw in the refrigerator.
My family doesn’t like too many “seeds” in their jam so I like to grind 1 Tbsp. of chia seeds using a coffee grinder and leave 1 Tbsp. whole seeds.
