Cherry Chia Seed Jam

Love jam but worried about the sugar content? Try this chia seed jam! Chia seeds are a great way to thicken jam without using pectin or a ton of sugar. You can use any fruit but I particularly like to use cherries. You can use your sweetener of choice such as maple syrup, agave or honey.

The chia seeds make the jam really thick and luxurious – sweet, sticky jammyness! (chia seeds are super good for you as they are naturally high in fibre, protein and anti-oxidants!)

This jam is really delicious on fresh toast, I used this jam as a topping for my cherry crumbles. Delish!
