Blackcurrant and Chia Seed Jam

Jam is one of our favourite things to make on the weekend, so we have fresh jam all week made out of our favourite berries. However, we know that you don't always have the time to make your own so we are sharing a delicious alternative to homemade jam: Blackcurrant and Chia Seed Jam.

This jam takes 15-20 minutes, so it's easy to have on the go in the morning and will last up to 5 days in your fridge. Plus it's full of antioxidants and fiber thanks to the blackcurrants and chia seeds.

This recipe is also super adaptable, so switch out your blackcurrants for another of your favourite berries and enjoy!

Blackcurrant and Chia Seed Jam

Ingredients:

500g of our Frozen Organic Blackcurrants

3 tbsp chia seeds

1tsp vanilla extract

2 tbsp of honey/maple syrup (optional)

Method:

1. Heat the blackcurrants gently in a pan until they have broken down. You can mash them with a fork slightly if needed until you get your desired texture - you may choose to have a chunkier or smoother jam.

2. Once at your desired texture, remove from the heat and add your vanilla, honey, and chia seeds.

3. Pour your jam into a heatproof bowl and allow it to stand for 10-15 minutes to cool and thicken.

4. Enjoy with your porridge, in a cake or however you choose, and store it in your fridge for up to 5 days.
