Chia Jam Recipe Closeup

I have been seeing a trend of people trying to make different kinds of chia jams. I decided to try it using frozen mixed berries. It's worth the hype! Since we rely on chia seeds to create thickness, we do not have to add a lot of sugar. This gives us a very thick fruit compote

How can I store this and for how long?

You can store in the refridgerator for about 1 week. You can also store this in the freezer in an air-tight container for up to 3 months.

Can I substitute the frozen berries with fresh fruit?

Is this considered a whole food?

If you use a whole sugar and the whole fruit, yes. As the recipe is written, it is considered a whole food.

Can I make jam a raw food?

Yes because the recipe uses chia seeds to thicken up the jam, you can keep the temperature low to soften the fruit.
