3 cups blueberries

1 cup sugar or maple syrup or sweetener – to taste

1 tsp vanilla extract

2 Tbsp chia seeds

Put the blueberries, vanilla extract and sugar in a medium pan over medium heat, mix well. Let this boil for 15 minutes, then let it cool down.

Add the chia seeds, stirring well and let rest a few hours. Put in glass jars and refrigerate for up to 3 weeks.

You can make this jam with raspberries, strawberries, cherries with almond extract or plums. You can add the juice of a lemon for the flavor and to keep the color vibrant.

Very good on toasts, or ice cream! and can be done sugar free with your favorite sweetener.
