Raspberry Chia Jam

Vegan, Gluten-Free, Paleo

 

Makes about 1 cup of jam

Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 cups fresh raspberries

  • 1 1/2 tablespoons pure maple syrup (or more, to taste)

  • 1 1/2 tablespoons chia seeds

  • Zest of 1/2 orange

Directions 

  1. Heat a small saucepan over medium-low heat and add the raspberries. Cook for 5-7 minutes until the berries are softened and have broken down, smashing down with the back of a spoon or fork periodically.

  2. Turn off the heat and add the maple syrup, chia seeds, and orange zest and stir well. Return the heat to low and stir for another 2 minutes until thickened. Turn off the heat and let sit for 5 minutes. The jam will get even thicker as it rests in the fridge.

  3. Store in a glass jar or airtight container in the fridge for 1-2 weeks.
