Quick Raw Low Sugar Strawberry Jam


Did you know you can make RAW strawberry jam in no time at all with just a small amount of sugar or sweetener? I love old fashioned jam but this is great in the summer when you don't want to stand over a hot stove. It works best with sweet, small, very ripe famer's market strawberries like gaviotas.

Raw Strawberry Jam

250 g or 2 c hulled, ripe strawberries
1 T lemon juice
1-2 T sweetener of choice (honey, agave, maple syrup, white or brown sugar...)
2 T chia seeds

Place strawberries in a blender with lemon juice and sweetener of choice. Blend or pulse for chunkier texture. Taste and adjust sweetener if you want. Transfer to bowl and stir in chia seeds. Pour into a jar and let set in fridge. Makes about 10 ounces and keeps up to 2 weeks refrigerated.
