Jam shouldn't be hard or scary. This vegan recipe for Raspberry Chia jam is very easy to make. It requires only 3 ingredients and cooks in under 5 minutes.
Place raspberries in a medium sauce pan. Cook on medium heat for 5 minutes. Your raspberries should release most of their juices. You can use a spoon or ladle to help crush them while they are cooking.
After cooking for 5 minutes, add chia seeds, and agave / maple syrup. Mix until well combined.
Pour jam into a mason jar or air tight container. Allow to cool at room temperature before placing into the fridge. The jam will last fro a little over a week or you can freeze for up to 3 months.
Enjoy on toast, in your peanut butter & jelly, or even in one of your favorite cocktails.
