In a medium saucepan over medium-high heat, stir together the
Fresh Strawberries (4 cups)
, juice of the
Corn Starch (1 Tbsp)
Salt (1 pinch)
, stirring until the cornstarch dissolves.
Bring to the boil, stirring constantly. Stir in the
Water (1/3 cup)
. Cover and simmer on a medium-low heat for 10 minutes.
If you want a smooth jam, mash the strawberries with a potato masher until you are happy with the consistency. If you want a chunky jam, don’t mash them at all. Simmer uncovered for another 5 minutes, or until the mixture is thickening.
Take the jam off the heat and stir in the
Vanilla Essence (1 tsp)
Honey (3 Tbsp)
Chia Seeds (2 Tbsp)
, making sure the seeds are evenly distributed. Let the jam cool for 5 minutes.
Pour the jam into glass jars with airtight lids. Store them in the fridge or freezer. Enjoy!
