Don’t kill them !

I am always bothered about making strawberry jam! We take the farm fresh, vitamin loaded strawberries. Then add sugar and cook and cook and cook till we have jam for the year !! This process unfortunately kills a lot of the nutrients and ends up with too much sugar!

Here is my 5 minute method of fresh tasting, healthy strawberry jam!

1 Cup fresh strawberries, washed and hulled
2 Tablespoons chia seeds

Put the two ingredients in the blender. Purée. Refrigerate for several hours to gel. Enjoy!
This jam will need to be refrigerated .
Uses:

I love having this in my breakfast cereal.
Make your own fruit yogurt by adding a dollop to your plain yogurt.
Great with scones.
Makes a great strawberry vinaigrette.

Need I go on.
