Delicious Cherry and Strawberry Jam


This cherry and strawberry chia jam is so easy to make. It’s perfect if you’ve got a lot of fruit that’s just about to go slightly soft and it’s SO much healthier than normal jam, plus chia seeds provide a source of protein and omega 3 😇🍒🍓

It’s a flexible recipe so if you only have strawberries that’s fine, just make sure you measure 3 cups. You can use raspberries, nectarines, apricots instead if you prefer.

How to make:

1 1/2 cups of pitted cherries
1 1/2 cups of strawberries
1-2 tbsp lemon juice
2 tsp maple syrup
3 tbsp chia seeds

Add the fruit to a saucepan and heat until soft and syrupy. Mash down slightly.


Add lemon juice and maple syrup and adjust to taste.

Pour into a jar and stir in the chia seeds. Allow to set for half an hour.

Delicious stirred into yogurt or spread on some sourdough toast.


It will keep in the fridge for about a week.
