Chia Berry & Vanilla Jam

Makes 450G Prep Time 3 minutes   Cook Time 10 minutes   Rated:


This sneaky little number is the perfect way to have delicious, thick and chunky jam without all the sugar that is usually in jam. Sugar is the key ingredient used to thicken most jams; instead I have used chia seed, which will absorb basically as much liquid as you can throw at it, then turn into a jelly-like substance, thus thickening your jam. So enjoy a serving of this with less guilt on the side. You can add more honey (or syrup) if you are feeling deprived, but the mango is very sweet and should give the jam the sweetness of sugar.
