My first published recipe. I had some strawberries that I needed to use up and decided some jam would be nice for breakfast. This is a very simple way to use up any fresh fruit or berries!
The irony for me is that I haven’t been able to eat strawberry jam since I was a kid! We had a HUGE jar of this awful, sugary, syrupy stuff when I was in second grade and I think my mother put that stuff on our toast for breakfast EVERY morning the entire school year. I was never so happy as when that jar was finally empty and I hadn’t eaten strawberry jam since.
I was apprehensive about this recipe but fresh and raw is DEFINITELY better. Strawberry jam is back in my diet after all these years, lol.
1 cup Stawberries, tops removed
1½ teaspoon Chia seeds
Agave, (to taste)
1 teaspoon Lemon juice or citric acid
1 pinch Sea salt
I processed the strawberries with my juicer using the blank plate but one could use an FP or blender and puree. Stir in the remaining ingredients and chill. Enjoy!
