This recipe is really for a small batch of jam.
It only makes 1/2 cup. But when you want more it takes almost no time at all to whip up another.
1 1/4 cups strawberries, chopped
2 tbsps sugar or honey
1 tbsp chia seeds
1/2 tsp vanilla
Heat strawberries and sugar in a small pot on medium heat until they get juicy. Mash it a bit.
Once it cooks down add the chia seeds, then continue simmering 10-15 minutes, stirring all the while.
Remove from heat and add the vanilla.
Pour into a jar and keep in the fridge.
Or sit back and have some toast and jam right now!
I started this blog so my daughters could find all of our family favourite recipes in one place. It has actually grown into more than just the family favourites but also other recipes we've tried out in our kitchen. I don't like to fill up the post with alot of chatter. Sometimes there's a little story to tell, but usually I like to get right to the point. So this is for them, but hope you find some recipes that you like as well. I'll be sharing a lot of recipes, and along the way you'll find some crafty things and maybe some helpful hints too!
