You can never go wrong when fruit is the main ingredient in any recipe—this simple & delightful blackberry jam is semi-sweet and extremely versatile—spread on toast, crackers or muffins, stir into oatmeal, grits or yogurt or even just eat it by the spoonful!
I loved it in my grits, on my Greek yogurt, spread on toast and whole wheat crackers, I even spread a little on my pumpkin muffin and it was delicious!!! Plus chia seeds are addicting once you start eating them!
- 3 cups fresh or frozen blackberries
- ¼ cup sugar
- 1 tbsp lemon juice
- ¼ cup chia seeds
- In a small pot combine blackberries, sugar and lemon juice; cook over medium heat for 5 minutes.
- Reduce heat to medium-low, stir in chia seeds and cook, stirring occasionally, until thickened (approximately 15-20 minutes).
- Remove from heat, cool and store in airtight containers in the refrigerator.
- Serve & enjoy!
