This Blueberry Raspberry Jam is a summer staple in my kitchen. it’s super fast and easy to make and you can whip it up in small batches as needed or make a larger batch and store it in the fridge.
You only need 4 ingredients and under 20 minutes time from start until it’s ready to eat.
It’s healthy, refined sugar free and packed with fresh berries and chia seeds. It’s easy to customize as well. I used blueberries and raspberries here but you could also substitute other soft fruits or berries and play around with the flavour.
I love this jam spread on pancakes or toast, eaten by the spoonful with peanut butter, or spooned on top of a bowl of porridge or overnight oats.
- 1.5 cups rasperries
- 2 cups blueberries
- ¼ tsp ground vanilla
- 6 tbsp chia seeds
- 3 tbsp maple syrup
- Put maple syrup and berries into a sauce pan and cook over medium/high heat stirring often until the maple syrup is bubbling and the berries are warm and soft (About 10 minutes)
- Use the back of a fork to mash the berries until there are no whole berries left (but chunks are good!)
- Once mashed, stir in the chia seeds and vanilla and let cook for 5-10 more minutes stirring often until the jam thickens to your desired consistency.
- Add more maple syrup if you want it sweeter.
