Ingredients

  • 2 cups sliced rhubarb (from about 1/2 pound)
  • 1/2 cup sugar or sweetener or choice or more to taste
  • 1/4 cup water (or up to 1/2 cup as needed)
  • 1 Tablespoon orange zest
  • 2 cups fresh or frozen wild blueberries any stems removed, washed
  • 1/2 cup chia seeds

Instructions

  • Place the rhubarb and sweetener in a saucepan along with about 1/4 to 1/2 cup of water (enough water to melt the sugar and let the rhubarb simmer). Bring the mixture to a boil, and then lower the heat to medium. 
  • Cool the rhubarb for about 15 minutes or until it's tender and starts to fall apart.
  • Add the orange zest and the blueberries. Return the mixture to a boil, and simmer for just about 5 more minutes, or until most of the liquid has evaporated.
  • Turn the heat off and stir in the chia seeds. Let the jam cool. As it cools and absorbs the chia seeds, it will thicken up.
  • Spoon jam into sterilized jars. 
  • Store in the refrigerator for 2-3 weeks.
