Quick and Easy Raspberry Jam Recipe

Did you know you can make your own jam in 5 minutes? You don’t need to heat it up, which keeps the fruit flavor true and fresh!

Ingredients:
1 cup raspberries
1 tbs chia seeds
1 tbs lemon juice
Honey, maple syrup, or liquid stevia to taste

1. Combine all ingredients in a food processor or Magic Bullet. Process to desired consistency.

2. Place the jam in the fridge for a few hours to thicken.

The chia seeds help to make this jam gelatinous without having to use pectin or large amounts of sugar. Pretty cool!

I liked this jam swirled with plain greek yogurt. Colby liked in on waffles. You can try it on scones, toast, or straight out of the jar! It will keep in the fridge for about a week, maybe longer. Let me know what other fruits you try it with!
