On to today's recipe! My love of Chia Seeds is well documented. This jam is great. Don't expect store-bought taste, because you won't get it. This is raw! (stay tuned for version 2, where I cook the strawberries first.) Now, I ground up the chia seeds because The Mailman doesn't like the texture of them - but let me know if you try it with whole ones! This jam would be great with peanut butter, on top of banana slices, or on a light dessert!
Recipe after the jump!
1 cup sliced strawberries
1 tbsp water
1 tbsp chia seeds
Stevia to taste (I used 2 tsp)
Combine all ingredients and blend in a processor (or, combine all but chia seeds and blend, then add chia seeds and stir - if you'd like to have the texture of the seeds).
Let it sit overnight, covered, in the fridge.
Remember - this only makes a little bit, because it's fresh! No preservatives like store bought jelly - so it won't stay good for long. Make only as much as you will use in a week!
