HOMemade Strawberry Jam
Homemade Strawberry Jam with chia seeds which is thick, sticky and glossy which is super simple to make and can be used to spread on bread or on pancakes.
  • 2 Cups- Fresh or Frozen strawberries
  • 1 cup - Granulated sugar
  • 2 Tbsp - Chia seeds
  • Juice of half a lemon
  1. Soak chia seeds in a cup of water and let it bloom for half and hour.
  2. Clean and chop the strawberries into smaller chunks.
  3. Take strawberries, sugar in a sauce pan and place it on low flame.
  4. Let the sugar melt and strawberries start cooking in it.
  5. Keep stirring it occasionally to avoid the jam from sticking to the bottom of the saucepan or from burning.
  6. When the strawberry is cooked and soft mash them using a fork and break them completely.
  7. Add bloomed chia seeds and cook till the strawberry jam is glossy, sugar completely soaked up and thick.
  8. Add lemon juice to this and give it a good mix.

  10. Keep stirring it while it cools down as well.
  11. Once the jam completely cools down, refrigerate it in a jar and use it with a week or two.
  12. This jam doesn't have much of shelf life as we aren't using any preservatives.
