We bought two boxes of cherries for Chrismas and were then given another box so, yesterday, I decided to make Cherry Chia Seed Jam. I cut the cherries in quarters removing the stones and then brought them to a boil (gently until the juices flowed) I added a tablespoon of honey then added a tablespoon of chia seeds and turned the element off.
So easy and what I ended up with was delicious jam. O.K. so it won't keep but it won't have a chance anyway and it is so easy to make I will now make regular small batches with blueberries, blackberries or raspberries from the freezer (and possibly some more from cherries while they are still in season).
This morning I had some on toast with avocado and cottage cheese. Delicious.
Mind you, I could easily eat it straight off the spoon and it would be great with vanilla ice cream.
