Keto-friendly strawberry jam

This is a jam with three good and delicious ingredients: strawberries, organic raw honey, and organic chia seeds. This strawberry jam is keto-friendly, dairy-free, low sugar, and most of all it’s healthy. It’s gluten-free too since I choose to use chia seeds instead of using flour to make the jam a little bit thicker.

This jam is so simple and easy to prepare. I decided to make my own version to ensure my family and I are eating healthy and I wanted to learn how to make jams. I will be making other jams in the future so watch this blog.

This strawberry jam will go well with homemade gluten-free toast with butter. And it’s great for yogurt or skyr as a topping. It can be layered into a homemade gluten-free cheesecake too.

Ingredients:

1 cup of organic strawberries

2 tablespoon of honey

1 tablespoon of chia seeds

Steps:

  1. Heat the sliced strawberries in a non-stick saucepan on medium heat, let it cook for 3-5 mins then start stirring it. Use a wooden spatula or potato masher to mash the fruit to your desired density.
  2. Add honey and stir it well.
  3. Then add the chia seeds stir it well and cook for 5 minutes.
  4. Remove from heat and let cool for 3-5 minutes. This strawberry jam will get thicker as it cools down.
  5. Stir again before transferring into a glass container. (This can be served straight away with bread, it can be layered with cookies, ice cream, yogurt, and cheesecakes. This jam can last in the fridge for 1 to 2 weeks and can be stored up to 3 months in the freezer).
