Berry Chia Jam

Yields1 Serving
Ingredients
 4 cups raspberries and or strawberries
 1 tbsp lemon juice
 6-7 dates (not medjool, just normal cooking dates, see the link at the bottom for where I get mine)
 3 tbsp chia seeds
Directions
1

Add all the ingredients into your magimix or blender and whizz until everything is blended. Check the taste and if you prefer it slightly sweeter add in another date or two.

2

Pop your jam mixture in a sauce pan and simmer on low for about 8-10 minutes. Then stir in the chia seeds and let them settle and expand for about 20 minutes.

3

When the mixture has cooled and the chia seeds have enlarged, gently pot the jam in sterilised glass jars. Let them cool on the side before popping the lid on.

4

I find that by boiling the jam/compote mixture it has a longer shelf life in the fridge and will be fine for at least a week if not longer.

A little bit more .....
5

I usually keep one jar in the fridge and pop the rest in small jars in the freezer to use later.

6

This is a great way of using up imperfect summer fruit which still tastes delicious at this time of the year. It also means you have a yummy tasty topping to use on chocolate puddings and the like in the winter months when we are all missing the taste of seasonal summer berries.
