Quick and Easy Strawberry Jam Recipe

Hi friends, I have been working on a recipe and excited to share it with you! You are all probably wondering what should you put on the whole wheat bread you have been making using my recipe in this post {Whole Wheat Oat Bread Recipe}. Well, the wait is over! ;) Check out this super quick and easy strawberry jam recipe.

This is my variation of one I have seen floating around the internet. It is made with chia seeds which are an amazing super food. Chia seeds are rich in Omega-3s, high in fiber, and a great source of antioxidants. In this recipe I use strawberries which are packed with vitamin C and fiber. The raw honey used to sweeten the jam is great for boosting the immune system with its anti-bacterial and anti-viral properties. The cinnamon and ginger are what set this recipe apart. Ginger and cinnamon are terrific anti-inflammatories and anti-bacterial spices and give the recipe just a hint of fall. With the health benefits aside, this jam tastes great. I couldn't keep my 3 year old out of it but luckily this recipes makes a lot of jam :)

Quick and Easy Strawberry Jam Recipe

1 3/4 cups strawberries (greens/stems removed)

2 Tablespoons raw honey (or agave to make it completely vegan)

2 Tablespoons chia seeds

1/4 teaspoon ground ginger

1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon

In a food processor combine all ingredients. Blend until smooth making sure to scrape sides as needed. Pour the jam into a glass container (will seem liquidy at first). Refrigerate overnight or until the jam sets up and has the traditional jam consistency.
