Raspberry Chia Seed Jam is incredibly easy to make, thickened with chia seeds, and sweetened with honey. This is a bright and refreshing jam that is perfect on toast, dolloped on oatmeal, or stirred into your favorite yogurt. Swap the raspberries for any fruit of choice for a delicious and fresh fruit jam!

In a medium saucepan, add the raspberries, lemon juice, and honey. Heat over low heat until the raspberries start to break down and the mix starts to thicken.
Remove the jam from the heat. At this point, you can strain the jam mixture through a fine mesh strainer to remove the berry seeds, or not. Add the chia seeds to the jam and stir to incorporate. Note - If straining the jam, add 1 and 1/2 tablespoons of chia seeds. If not straining, only use 1 tablespoon of chia seeds.
Transfer the jam to a jelly jar (or any covered container). Refrigerate the jam for at least 4 hours to give the chia seeds time to plump up. Or, overnight is best.
Spread on your favorite toast, yogurt, or oatmeal, and Enjoy!
Fruit - Any fruit of your choice will work.
Straining the fruit - You can strain the jam after it has heated to remove seeds and/or fruit skins to make more of a jelly. Or, you can leave as is for a thicker jam.
Honey - Any sweetener of choice will work. Sweeten the jam to your taste.
Chill - I recommend giving the jam some time in the refrigerator to chill - at least 4 hours, but overnight is best. This gives the chia seeds time to soften and plump up.
