|Fresh raspberry jam!|
I used to make jam with just berries and a little sweetener, which is fine but you end up with more of a berry syrup. The natural mucilaginous effect of the ground flax or chia seeds thickens it and gives it the perfect gelled texture so you can spread it like traditional jam.
2 c fresh or thawed berries
1 tb flax or chia seeds, finely ground in coffee mill
1 tb - 1/4 c sugar, sucanat, or honey, to taste
Blend or process all ingredients, and place in jars.
Easiest jam ever.
It should be used or frozen within 4 days, so it's good to make in small batches. This recipe makes about a pint. The sugar helps it to keep longer, but it would be fine without any sugar (depending on the flavor of the berries) if you're eating it up quickly. I toss any jam that we don't use within a few days into a smoothie.
Try this jam with some fresh roasted homemade creamy peanut butter!
