Chia Strawberry Jam

I used to make a lovely strawberry jam when I had my cafe, I must admit, I haven’t made a strawberry jam since! I have no idea why, when homemade jam is so beautiful. So I decided to make some again, but this time I was keen to add Chia Seeds to the mix as they are so good for you and they are there own thickening agent when mixed with water etc. This is a thermomix version but could easily be adapted by mashing the strawberries and cooking on a stove top. I am also keen to take this a step further (actually a step healthier) and use honey instead of sugar. But this is a beautiful strawberry jam recipe, preservative free.

Now also in the app!
