Blueberry Chia Seed Jam

Chia Seed Jam on Bread www.nutiva.com

A great jam will not only be the perfect spread for morning toast, but it can also pair with other things like pancakes or as a topper for wild salmon.

But don’t be fooled by jams – they are not all created equally. Most “real fruit” jams are typically anything but real. Not our Blueberry Chia Seed Jam! Not only is it made with fresh blueberries, but it’s also packed with the nutrients of chia seeds and lightly sweetened with nature’s coconut sugar.

Recipe type: Snack
Serves: 1 cup
Ingredients
  • 2 C. Organic Blueberries Fresh or frozen
  • 2 Tbsp. Nutiva Organic Coconut Sugar
  • 1 Medium Lemon Juiced
  • 2½ Tbsp. Nutiva Organic Chia Seeds Black
Instructions
  1. Lightly mash the blueberries (if you're using frozen ones, make sure to unthaw)
  2. Place the blueberries, coconut sugar and lemon in a medium-sized pan on the stove
  3. Bring the mixture to a boil, stirring often
  4. Reduce to a simmer for 15 minutes and continue to "mash" the blueberries with a fork or masher (you'll want to mash them until they reach desired consistency, leaving some a little chunkier for even more texture in the jam)
  5. Let it cool
  6. Once cooled, bring to a simmer once again, add chia seeds and stir frequently for about 8-10 minutes
  7. Remove entire mixture from heat, and let it cool completely
  8. Transfer to a Mason jar (or other storage container), and store in the fridge

    Thank you for posting this recipe. It looks yummy and it fits the Paleo plan perfectly, including extra protein from the Chia Seeds. A must make.

    Hi Fabulous Folks:

    In the recipe for Chia Blueberry Jam, the directions read:
    “Lightly mash the blueberries (if you’re using frozen ones, make sure to unthaw)” —
    “thaw” by itself means to warm them from their frozen state —
    “unthaw” would mean to refreeze them.

    Love your products and what you great folks are up to in the world!
    Kind regards,
    Margaret

    I can’t wait to try this recipe. I was wondering if strawberries would be a good choice considering the use of lemon

    • Sarah Kay Hoffman says

      Hi Rasheda! Yes, strawberries could replace the blueberries if you’d like. Sounds like another great combination:)

    Just made my second batch of this and it is TERRIFIC!!! I used a frozen organic berry blend and the flavor is outstanding…just the right amount of sweetness. The texture and consistency of the jam is perfect, too. Thanks for posting this recipe; I’ll be using it a lot!

    • Sarah Kay Hoffman says

      That’s wonderful, Nancy! It’s such a great jam to have on hand at all times. Thanks for stopping by!

    I just got the recipe for the jam I was wondering if you would be able to do this in larger batches in canning the jam? Reason is in the summer I do canning for the blueberries,blackberries and the strawberries to jellies and jams.

    • Sarah Kay Hoffman says

      Hi Tommie – Yes, you should be able to can the jam. Give it a try, and let us know how it goes. Have fun!
