If you’ve got 3 cups of blueberries (fresh or frozen) that you need to use up, try this recipe out !
The hardest part of this recipe is trying to figure out if you’ve lightly mashed 1/2 the blueberries or not. When you reach the part of tasting to see if you want to add more maple syrup to make it sweeter you may not want to but mommy and me both decided that it was a little on the tart side and decided to add more (two extra tablespoons worth to be exact). Even with the chia seeds stirred in and cooked for a minute, my jam still looked a little loose but they said not to worry about it on their website so I left it alone to cool down while I got some cleaning up taken care of. By the time I was done cleaning and went back to check on the jam, it was amazing to see how much firming up had taken place ! I placed the cooled down jam into a jar and ta-da:
The jam is sweet but far from being sickly sweet and the chia seeds give just a little bit of crunch like you would from the seeds of a strawberry or a blackberry. I can’t wait to see what it’s like when it’s eaten with other dishes !
This recipe came from bon appétit. You can find the recipe here.
I wasn’t paid in any form to promote bon appétit.
Take care y’all !
