DIY Strawberry Jam

Makes: 400mls

Serves: 4-6

DIY Strawberry Jam

Equipment

  • Vitamix 2L Wet Container
  • Mason Jar

Ingredients

  • 2 cups strawberries (fresh or frozen and thawed)
  • 2 Tbsp water
  • 2 Tbsp chia seeds
  • Optional: liquid sweetener of choice (RMS, Honey, Maple Syrup, date paste etc. )

Method

  1. Place your strawberries into your 2L Vitamix wet container and secure the lid.
  2. Turn your variable speed onto 1 and then slowly move up to about variable speed 8. Stop blending once your have reached a nice mushy consistency however, still with some chunks. Do not blend until your strawberries are a puree. Consider this a rough chop instead of a blend.
  3. Add in your water, chia seeds and desired sweetener and blend on variable speed 8. Use your tamper to help move the ingredients around. Stop blending when everything is incorporated. Do not blend into a puree!
  4. Place your jam mixture into Glass jars and place in the fridge for at least 1 hour to set.
  5. Enjoy as you would regular jam.
  6. Your jam should last for about 1 week in the fridge.

Notes

I used frozen strawberries for this recipe and pureed them before hand so I got more of a chia pudding. Use fresh strawberries and roughly pulse them to get a chunky style strawberry jam.
