Cook Time 10 minutes
Author Craving Something Healthy

Ingredients

  • 2- 6 ounce package of blackberries about 2 cups
  • 1 tablespoons chia seeds
  • optional: 2-3 tablespoons of any sweetener honey, maple syrup, sugar, agave or stevia to taste

Instructions

  • Rinse berries and remove any that are over-ripe. Place them in a medium saucepan and bring to a boil over medium-high heat. No additional water is needed, unless the berries don't give off much juice.
  • Reduce heat to low, cover pot and let berries simmer for about 10 minutes or until softened.
  • Remove from heat and mash berries with a fork. If a smoother jam is desired, puree them in a food processor and strain off any solids.
  • Taste berries and add sweetener if necessary.
  • Add chia seeds. Stir to combine well and let fruit cool for about 15 minutes.
  • Spoon thickened jam into jars, and store for 2-3 weeks in the refrigerator.

Notes

If you prefer a thicker jam, add an extra tablespoon or two of chia seeds.
