You can take this basic idea of ​​strawberry and chia jam and make it with blueberries, raspberries, cherries or any fruit you want. I love that they used lime there because it gives it a nice sour touch.

And the good thing is that you can literally eat it within 15 minutes of starting the recipe. However, if you keep it in the refrigerator, it will settle even more when it's cold. But who can expect that when you smell those strawberries on low heat for 15 minutes! I spread it on toast with STAT peanut butter. But you can also use it as a topping for pancakes or waffles, or shake it over yogurt.

Course: breakfast

American kitchen

Cook time: 17 minutes

Total time: 17 minutes

Servings: 2 servings

Calories: 305kcal

Ingredients

  • 2 cups frozen strawberries *
  • 2 tablespoons lime juice plus zest 1 large lime
  • 6 tablespoons of pure maple syrup
  • 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract
  • 3 tablespoons of chia seeds

Instructions

  • In a small skillet, add strawberries, lime juice, and 2 tablespoons of water. Simmer for 10 minutes, stirring occasionally. About halfway through the slow cook time, start breaking the berries by crushing them with a fork into a thick but even texture.

  • Once the berries break down, add the maple syrup, vanilla extract, chia seeds, and lime zest until combined, about 30 seconds.

  • Put out the fire. Let the pan rest for about 5-7 minutes until the chia seeds thicken the jam.

  • Transfer to a jar and refrigerate; the texture will harden even more when it cools down.

Notes

  • Storage: Store refrigerated for up to 2 weeks (chia jam is not stable)
  • Frozen versus fresh *: One pound of fresh strawberries can be substituted for 2 cups of frozen strawberries, reducing cooking time by about half
