Fridge Jam

I came across the idea for this easy fridge jam at thankfulexpressions.blogspot.com 

I love that it is healthier and much faster than the normal jam making process!

  • 4 small apples, peeled and cored
  • 3 cups strawberries, hulled
  • 4 tbsp coconut sugar/maple syrup (Optional)
  • 40ml water
  • 4 tbsp chia seeds

Stew the apples together with the water and sugar (if using). (100C on speed 2 for about 10 mins in the Bellini)

Add strawberries and blend until you reach your desired consistency for jam

Add the chia seeds and stir until well combined.

Pour into sterlized jars and place in the fridge. The chia will swell and help the jam to set.

This jam doesn’t have nearly as much sugar as regular jam so it will not keep as long, but that’s not so much of an issue when you can make it so quickly and in smaller quantities!

This also works well with mulberries in place of the strawberries.  For the mulberry version I add in the sliced skin of a lemon or an orange to the stewing apples, then remove then skin when I put the jam into jars.
