Ingredients

Instructions

  • In a small skillet, add the strawberries, lime juice and water. Simmer over medium heat for 10 minutes, stirring occasionally. About halfway through the simmering time, begin breaking down the berries by smashing them with a fork into a chunky but uniform texture.
  • Once the berries are broken down, stir in the maple syrup, vanilla extract, chia seeds, and lime zest until combined, about 30 seconds.
  • Turn off the heat. Let the skillet sit for about 5-7 minutes until the chia seeds thicken the jam.
  • Transfer to a jar and refrigerate; the texture will set even further when chilled.

Notes

Storage: Stores refrigerated for up to 2 weeks (chia jam is not shelf stable)
Frozen vs. fresh*: One pound of fresh strawberries can be substituted for 2 cups frozen strawberries, which cuts the simmering time to around half
