Wild Blueberry Chia Jam
Recipe by Charlotte Martin, MS, RDN, CSOWM, CPT for Wyman’s
This easy and healthy wild blueberry chia jam is your new favorite sugar free jam recipe! It uses Wyman’s frozen wild blueberries (a superfood), has no added sugar, and is ready in just 10 minutes. Making jam has never been easier!
- 2 cups frozen Wyman’s Wild Blueberries
- 2 Tbsp chia seeds
- 1/4 cup unsweetened applesauce
- Juice of an orange (or about ~1/4 cup orange juice)
- Optional: 2 – 3 tsp maple syrup or honey
Combine chia seeds, applesauce, and orange juice in a small bowl to let thicken; set aside.
Meanwhile, heat the frozen wild blueberries in a small saucepan over medium heat, stirring occasionally. Crush the berries periodically with whatever you’re using to stir (I like to leave some whole ones for texture, but totally up to you).
Heat until the berries are completely thawed and mushy (they should be bubbling), about 5 to 7 minutes. Stir in the chia mixture, and continue cooking for another few minutes.
Remove from the heat and allow jam to cool and thicken in the saucepan before using or jarring for later! Store in an air-tight container or mason jar in the fridge for up to a week
