Homemade Raspberry Jam

This jam is super quick and easy to make and so much healthier than store bought jams that contain a lot of refined sugars. You can keep it stored in your refrigerator for 1 to 2 weeks. It's perfect on a slice of spelt bread in the morning or on a rice cracker as a healthy snack. You can use any type of fruit but some fruits need a little bit more water in order to get the right consistency. 

Duration: 20 minutes

The ingredients:
  • 250 grams of raspberries
  • 1 tbs rice syrup or any other natural sweetener you have in your pantry
  • 1 tbs water
  • 1 tbs chia seeds

What you do:
  1. Heat the raspberries on low heat in a small sauce pan. Smash them with a fork (if you want fruit chunks in it don't smash all the way).
  2. Add 1 tablespoon of sweetener and 1 tablespoon of water and stir gently for about 5-10 minutes. 
  3. Let the mixture cool for 5 minutes, then stir in the chia seeds. Use more chia seeds if you like thicker jam (the chia seeds serve as the thickener).
  4. Put the jam in an airtight jar and let it set overnight in your refrigerator.
