Amazing Chia Jam – quick, healthy, raw

‘The color and texture of this jam is amazing.  Strawberry Jam with no processed sugar, no pectin and a unique texture by adding chia seeds.  I have used Chia seeds every day this week during my tv programme, in salad dressings, dips, cakes and bakes.  As an ingredient, these seeds fascinate me’

You will need:

1 kilo strawberries
juice of 2 lemons
the seeds from a vanilla pod
4 tablespoons stevia, or honey, or agave
8 tablespoons chia seeds

Chop up the strawberries and place in a saucepan with the lemon juice. When it reaches boiling point, add your chosen sweetener, lower the heat and simmer for 5 minutes.
Remove from heat and allow to cool completely.
Once it is cool add the chia seeds and stir.
Place in the fridge and leave to set for 2 days before using.

‘Because the jam contains no processed sugar, store in the fridge and consume within 2 weeks’
