Oh hey there! Long time no see. After weeks of absence I finally decided to write something:) And the first thing I thought I’d share was a delicious recipe for strawberry jam that changed my world. No really, it kind of did.
So I’ve always liked jam but have never eaten it since focusing on health. For years I’ve gone to family parties and avoided the homemade strawberry jam because I knew how much forsugar was in there. Jam was just never an option. If I was going to splurge it would be on chocolate, not jam.
A cute friend in my neighborhood knew we were limiting sugar at our house and brought over some simple, delicious, jam that was an instant game changer. With only 3 clean simple ingredients jam was back on the menu for my occasional Gf waffles, protein pancakes or PB&J.
- 2 cups washed, cut strawberries (stems removed obvi)
- 1/4 c raw local honey
- 2T chia seeds
1. Blend strawberries together until your preferred consistency (some people like chunky)
2. Mix in honey and chia seeds
3. Pour into a sauce pan and bring to a light boil. Stir for 5 minutes. Remove from heat, let cool, and store in jars in fridge or freezer.
….look at this delicious stuff. So yummy, simple and clean, no refined sugar or preservatives, and extremely easy to make.
