Recipe: Blueberry Honey Chia Jam

The Benefits of antioxidants and omega-3 fatty acids

Blueberries and chia seeds pair up for flavor and  fantastic health benefits

Blueberry honey chia jam is not only delicious but also a healthier alternative to traditional jams and preserves. Unlike store-bought jams that are often loaded with refined sugars and artificial additives, this homemade version is sweetened with natural blueberry honey, harvested locally and always raw, and thickened with nutrient-rich chia seeds. Blueberries are known for their antioxidant properties, while honey adds a touch of sweetness and enhances the flavor of the jam. Plus, chia seeds are packed with omega-3 fatty acids, fiber, and protein, making this jam not only tasty but also nutritious.

Blueberry Honey Chia Jam

2 cups fresh blueberries (or frozen)
2-3 tablespoons Fool's Gold Blueberry Honey (adjust to taste)
2 tablespoons chia seeds
1 tablespoon lemon juice

Instructions: In a medium saucepan, combine the blueberries and blueberry honey over medium heat. If using frozen blueberries, allow them to thaw slightly before cooking. Cook the blueberry mixture, stirring occasionally, until the blueberries start to break down and release their juices, about 5-7 minutes. Mash the blueberries with a fork or potato masher to your desired consistency. If you prefer a smoother jam, you can use an immersion blender or transfer the mixture to a blender and blend until smooth. Stir in the chia seeds and lemon juice (if using). Reduce the heat to low and let the mixture simmer for another 5-10 minutes, stirring occasionally, until thickened. Remove the saucepan from the heat and let the jam cool slightly. The chia seeds will absorb some of the liquid and help thicken the jam further as it cools. Once cooled, transfer the blueberry honey chia jam to a jar or airtight container and refrigerate for at least 1-2 hours, or until completely chilled and set.

Enjoy your homemade blueberry honey chia jam on toast, pancakes, oatmeal, yogurt, or any other favorite breakfast or snack! This blueberry honey chia jam is naturally sweetened with blueberry honey and packed with antioxidants from the blueberries and omega-3 fatty acids from the chia seeds. It's a delicious and nutritious addition to your pantry!
