The scent of homemade jam reminds me of back in the days
Long time ago when my nana and grandpa still lived they had a little kitchen garden. My brother and I were often found here when we were little children.
My grandpa grew all different kind of berries here: gooseberries, blueberries, strawberries etc. We were often allowed to help pick the fruits. After that, my nana stuffed the whole basement with homemade jams. The whole house smelt like fruit perfume.
a superfood jam
I choose to add chia seeds because I did not want to use refined sugars this time. The chia seeds facing the fruit without having to add extra sugars or gelatin! Chia seeds are a superfood. They contain magnesium, omega 3 fatty acids, calcium, protein, fibers and so much more goodness!
400 gram frozen raspberries
juice of one lemon
touch of cinnamon
4 tbs chia seeds
2 tbs agave syrup
- Put the raspberries in a deep pan together with the lemon juice. ( I use a casserole). Let this heat up for 5 minutes or until the raspberries are soft.
- Crush the raspberries with a spoon.
- Now stir in the chia seeds, cinnamon powder, agave syrup and let this cook on a low heat for another 5 minutes. Put the jam in a big jar or a couple of little ones. Great idea for a gift!
- This jam is delish on a cracker!
