Blueberry + Chia Jam
Here is a quick healthy blueberry jam recipe that won’t spike your blood sugar and is perfect topped onto oatmeal, spelt and honey scones. Most traditional jams are made from 1 part fruit to 1 part sugar, then reduced down for about an hour or until thick and syrupy. My version is basically just fruit, scented with a hint of vanilla, apple, lemon and a touch of honey or stevia. This all goes into a small pot and simmered over a low heat until the moisture starts to release from the blueberries and forms a gorgeous shade of midnight blue. If you’re using fresh blueberries, you may need to add a splash of apple juice or puree to get the consistency you need.
