Whip up this easy low-sugar blueberry chia seed jam with only four ingredients: blueberries, lemon juice + zest, maple syrup and chia seeds. Quick, delicious and healthy!
Combine all blueberries, maple syrup, lemon juice and lemon juice in a medium pot and simmer over medium heat for 10 to 15 minutes, until the fruits burst.
At this point, you can taste the mixture (careful not to burn yourself!) and add more sweetener if needed.
Add chia seeds and mix to combine. Bring to a gentle boil and cook for couple minutes, stirring often. The texture will be too runny but don't worry, it's normal. It will thickens as it cools down.
If you want a smooth jam (see pictures above), transfer to your blender or food processor and pulse a few time until there is no fruit chunks left. If you want a chunky jam, skip this step.
Transfer to a jar. Let it cool on the counter, then close the lid.
Store in the fridge for a 2-3 weeks. You can also freeze it in freezer-friendly container for up to 1 year and thaw before using (then keep in the fridge).
